Meeting with Tim Ingold

I have made arrangements for our group to meet with Tim Ingold on Wednesday, Feb 22 at 11-12. We will most likely meet in the atrium. For those of you who cannot attend, I will post notes from the meeting on the blog. While we will focus on Ingold's work on technology, skill, and materiality, he has written on numerous topics. If you want to get a better sense of the breadth of his work, I recommend looking at his most recent book, "The Perception of the Environment" (full reference below). Most of this book contains previously published essays, with some new ones included.

Below is a list of some additional references for those of you that are interested. I will make copies available of those writings listed below that are not downloadable from the library.
