Guest lecture by Prof Richard Grusin (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee)

Prof Grusin teaches the international seminar for the MaNaMa in Literary Studies. This is the public lecture that opens the course. Dr. Shannon Lambert (Ghent University) will serve as respondent.

No registration needed.

Short abstract: In this lecture I will explore the fruitful relations among arboreal and technical infrastructures, neither to embrace nor to dismiss them. In so doing I hope to demonstrate the ways in which technical, arboreal, and mycorrhizal infrastructures are linked by their participation in what I have elsewhere called "radical mediation."
