Dear Art and Architecture Club,

We are pleased to announce a Port Talk sponsored by the Art and Architecture Club on Wednesday 8 July, 8 pm, Churchill Room, London House. The speaker is Graham Harman, a major figure in contemporary continental philosophy, author of several recent books on Heidegger and phenomenology (and most recently of the first philosophical monograph in English on Bruno Latour), and professor at the American University of Cairo. He will be speaking on the Speculative Realist movement which he co-founded. See attachment/poster below for more details. Hope you can join us for this special event.
