Dear friends of AURA



Isabelle Stengers is professor at the University in Bruxelles and a leading philosopher of science whose work on the possibilities of a new science-humanities dialogue and critique of capitalism has been hugely influential. Isabelle Stengers holds an Honorary Doctorate at Aarhus University and will be a discussant for AU's Futures Lecture with Bruno Latour on 2 June.  

For our last Slow Seminar of this semester we will be reading some of her most recent work which tries to grapple with the need to rethink science and politics to understand the contemporary world. 



The Slow seminar will take place June 21 from 12.00 to 15.30 at the old library at the Moesgård Mansion (aka the Owl room).

Moesgård Allé 20, 8270 Højbjerg.



The two works to read are:


  • Stengers, Isabelle (2011): “Another science is possible!. A plea for slow science”. Inaugural lecture for the Chair Willy Calewaert at Vrije Universities Brussels, 13 December 2011. 13 pages.
  • Stengers, Isabelle (2015): In Catastrophic Times. Resisting the Coming Barbarism. Open Humanities Press. 156 pages.




Please write me back if you will be attending, so that I can order enough sandwiches and coffee. We hope to see you there!
