Speculative Realism Strikes Back.

Is it just me or did Graham’s blog slowly become a bit less philosophical and more “this-is-what-I-did-today” kind of blog? I wonder if he needs to open a Twitter account? The next Speculative Realism conference is coming up:

Speculative Materialism / Speculative Realism Conference

UWE Philosophy are pleased to announce that it will host a conference on Speculative Materialism and Speculative Realism on Friday 24th April 2009. This event follows on from the Speculative Realism conference held at Goldsmiths in April 2007 (the proceedings of which were published in Collapse vol. 3 (2007)). This second event will reunite the original four speakers:

  • Ray Brassier (AU Beirut), author of Nihil Unbound.
  • Iain Hamilton Grant (UWE Bristol), author of Philosophies of Nature After Schelling.
  • Graham Harman (AU Cairo), author of Tool-Being and Guerrilla Metaphysics.
  • Quentin Meillassoux (ENS Paris), author of After Finitude.

Further details will be posted here in due course.

For further information please contact Iain Grant.

Will someone blog about this? If you don’t have a blog, email me and we can arrange for an exclusive PE appearance.
