[Hmm, if I were Professor Latour and had to choose among a slew of international invitations in the middle of a busy term, I think I would choose CIS over UCI too. Of course that's just speculation - I imagine there was no direct choice, but it's a productive fiction to dwell on briefly: I've been struck by how many exciting conversations - those that touch on issues seemingly urgent and critical in those traditional intellectual tasks of analyzing pasts and imagining futures - happen these days in spaces that until very recently were marginalized and ignored by scholars in the metropole. I think this is a good change, historically speaking. How scholars in the industrialized North will deal with this change remains to be seen.]
