“Une journée avec Bruno Latour”: The event in videos, texts, drawings and pictures

Une journée avec Bruno Latour

The Center for the Sociology of Innovation held on October 23, 2023 a day-long tribute to Bruno Latour.

Bruno Latour has left a considerable intellectual legacy, many milestones of which he set during his twenty-five years at the CSI, where he was, in turn and in his own way, an anthropologist of science and technology, a political theologian and an investigative philosopher. During this event, members of the CSI, Bruno Latour’s companions along the way and researchers whom he has inspired or baffled continued their conversation with his work.

Fonds Bruno Latour – Mines Paris

This day of tribute was an occasion to associate Bruno Latour’s name with a book collection from the Ecole des mines library, hitherto known as the “STS collection”, of which he is a prime instigator. This collection has now been renamed ”Fonds Bruno Latour – Mines Paris”.

”The history of this collection, resulting from an encounter between a philosopher and the daughter of a major industrialist, will not come as a complete surprise to those who have read Bruno Latour’s book Les microbes, Guerre et Paix (Métailié, 1984) [The Pasteurization of France, Harvard University Press, 1988], dedicated to Louis Pasteur’s discoveries.”
