Let's Read Theory Podcast! Jane Bennett's "Vibrant Matter"
 
Jane Bennett argues in Vibrant Matter that things--matter, objects, energy, processes--can be just as active politically as humans.

In this special podcast, I try to explain the basics of Bennett's arguments for this "vital materialism" and then explore some of the ways that it might be used by us. 


This podcast is designed for people unfamiliar with the weird, wild world of Theory--I'm trying to take Jane Bennett's ideas and translate them so that people outside of academia can understand and work with them. If you find this podcast useful, let me know you like it and I may add this as a new regular feature of Storming the Ivory Tower!
