ABSTRACT

Recent years has seen an explosive interest in ‘ontology’ in anthropology and the humanities more generally. The notion was generally abandoned along with the realist or essentialist vocabularies that were superseded by the cultural and linguistic turns of the 70s and 80s, which highlighted power/knowledge relations, discursive and social constructions, and epistemological positions. In the mid-90s ontology returned as a theoretical orientation within science and technology studies that brought attention to the agency of nonhumans (ie Latour, Mol, Pickering). In the last ten years, the term has gained a series of additional, and different, inflections in anthropology, where “the ontological turn” has been much debated (ie Viveiros de Castro, Holbraad), and in philosophies affiliated with speculative realism, speculative materialism, object-oriented ontology, and new materialism (ie Meillassoux, Harman, Grant, Morton). These approaches have some shared pre-cursors, not least Gilles Deleuze, and they share a general interest in examining the material, nonhuman forces of the earth. However, there are also significant differences, and incompatibilities, between them. In this intensive seminar, we will read and discuss a series of key works in order to tease apart their different intellectual histories, orientations, and their possible implications for anthropology..
