Bruce Braun, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2011

Bruce Braun (Department of Geography, College of Liberal Arts [CLA], Spring 2011

Project:  “Machine Ecologies: Posthumanism and the City ‖”

Braun made progress on several aspects of his project, including work on the role of technical objects in urban environmental governance; research on the concept of resilience, which has in some respects replaced “sustainability” as a keyword in environmental governance; and work on the role of habit in urban environmental practice, with particular attention to the emerging field of persuasive technologies that have as their goal cultivating or transforming habit. He wrote two papers, including a plenary address for the Nordic Geographers Conference in Denmark, and completed a review essay as part of a symposium on Jane Bennett‘s Vibrant Matter.
