On Wednesday 26 February 2014, the French Professor in Sociology, Bruno Latour, gave a lecture at the Royal Library, The Black Diamant.

The Affects of Capitalism
Through the work of science studies applied to the peculiar discipline of economics, a very innovative view of the ways in which the "economic infrastructure" affects people has been proposed. However, it is not always clear in what way it modifies the older ideas of capitalism and the distribution of political positions that have been generated by such concept. The lecture will illustrate this new view by showing the place of Economics in modern anthropology, and which redefinition of politics it entails.

This lecture is now on Youtube and photos were uploaded on the Royal Academy Facebook here.
