Invention as social process. Centre for the Study of Invention and Social Process – Sociology Department, Goldsmiths College, University of London

Rather than take the identity of social and material entities as given and foundational, the concept of invention points to the way in which persons and objects should be understood in terms of temporality in general and novelty in particular, through, for example, notions of life, duration and process. This orientation connects the interests of the Centre in science, technology and art with questions of identity and the body, ethics and politics.

If I weren't going to be in Dublin, I would be attending this event:

Wednesday May 5th 2004
4:00pm – 6:00pm, Seminar Room, 12th Floor Warmington Tower
With Martin Wooley, John Wood, Celia Lury, Andrew Barry and Alex Wilkie

Thanks Alex!
