This is the companion topic to an upcoming Reading Together session of Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing’s 2004 book Friction: An Ethnography of Global Connection (isbn:9780691120652), that was just published in French as Friction : Délires et faux-semblants de la globalité (isbn:9782359251791).
Details about the Reading Together session will be posted soon. Buy your copy now if you’re interested! (Both English and French versions can be used.)
The Arts of Living on a Damaged Planet conference was held in May 2014 at Aarhus University, three years before an eponymous book was published in 2017 from its proceedings. Readers who followed #engagement:3rd-technoscape will recognize a few authors among the conference speakers.
