No. 6 Paris: Invisible City

Our first "in town" reading is proposed by Aideen English. It is an interactive piece by Bruno Latour (text) and Emilie Hermant (photos) and is available here.
As Aideen says "
It's very interesting for its intersection of photography, space, urban theory and social theory"
Bruno Latour has been described as a philosopher, anthropologist, and sociologist, but it would seem that applying labels to his work would not be appropriate. A brief account of his work is available here, also his own website http://www.bruno-latour.fr/biography.html

We will be reading the first chapter "Traversing" as a minimum, but I suggest reading as much a possible as it does look very interesting and relevant to the dicussions we have been having so far.

We will be meeting to discuss this reading on Tuesday 8th September at 7.30 at the Library Bar, Central Hotel, Exchequer Street.
