UIUC lecture: material sociality and social materiality

I'm excited to be heading off tomorrow for Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, where I was generously invited to speak as part of the UIUC School of Art and Design Fall Lecture Series.

When: 25 September, 2006, 5-7pm

Where: Krannert Art Museum, Room 62

(Steve Kurtz and Lucia Sommer give the next lecture on 9 October, 2006. Wish I could see that!)

I'll be talking about material sociality and social materiality - or everything from the social differences between spoons and blenders, and how craft is a matter of class and taste, to smart objects and ambient intelligence, turn-of-the-century Zuni pottery and the continuing fight to repatriate the Elgin Marbles.

If you're there, please come say hello - and if there's anything I should see or do while I'm in town, let me know.
