Wellek Lectures: The Topics

Ecology
Objects
Feminism

Graham has been writing about OOO and politics a bit, via Latour.

In these lectures I shall develop my thoughts about an ecological polity to come that is object-oriented.

In some recent talks I've begun to elaborate this. Thanks very much to anthropologist extraordinaire Dominic Boyer, and indirectly to the Best Party. He works with them a lot. At some point I'm going there to do the same. Iceland I mean. Hopefully summer 2015.

Dominic is also head of our ecology and humanities institute here, under whose auspices Graham and then Marina Zurkow came.

I'm tremendously inspired by this Wellek lecture invitation to have been able to think an eco-OOO politics. Thanks again to the very kind and generous people at Irvine.
