Bruno Latour, leading figure in Science and Technology Studies and Professor at Sciences Po (Paris), will offer a four-day long advanced seminar (a “master class”) to a limited group of graduate students and faculty at UIC, who are engaged with questions of the politics of the environment, the Anthropocene, and climate change. In this master class, Latour will focus on his recent work entitled Facing Gaia (emerging from Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh lecture series and his upcoming book with the same title), where he addresses the complex relationship between nature and religion in the age of the Anthropocene.
