Bruno Latour spent a week with us at GIDEST  in October 2016. Following his seminar, which was devoted to discussion of his paper “On a Possible Triangulation of Some Present Political Positions,” we spoke to him about his current work on the anthropocene and nature, a series of propositions that will be published in English in 2017 as Facing Gaia.

GIDEST is a Mellon-funded research institute based at The New School that incubates transdisciplinary research at the intersection of social theory, art, and design. As well as our faculty, artist-in-residence, and doctoral fellows’ programs, we run a series of biweekly public seminars that feature both prominent and emerging scholars and practitioners. Our seminars are devoted to discussion of pre-circulated materials.
