Bruno Latour Audio/Visual Archive

As engaging and thought provoking as Bruno Latour's texts are, his ideas and thinking can sometimes be more digestible delivered by natural means of audio and visual communication. I've collected some of Latour's more interesting talks into a single place, which sometimes require a little bit more digging to find than a single search on YouTube. Many of these videos take angle at things from his later "modes of existence" work, but the general principles of the actor-network theory that Latour is known for is (arguably) present in everything. A similar compilation is available at Anthem group (The Actor-Network Theory – Heidegger Meeting), although it has not been updated with talks after 2012.
