Workspace revitalization program

Those of you with eagle eyes may note that I’m just now sitting down to read Bruno Latour’s Reassembling the social: An introduction to actor-network theory. Those of you who know me well may find it odd that despite having a dissertation/book manuscript and two published articles that use actor-network theory as a primary methodological influence, I must admit that I’ve never read its founding primer. (I should also probably note that this blog post was largely an excuse to play with my first webcam. I’ll be teaching on online course this summer and figured it was probably time to have one.)
