41 Actor-Network Theory II Soziologie der Alltagstechnik: Über Transponder und andere Türöffner. Kann ein Schlüssel intelligent handeln? Günter Burkart Vor ein paar Jahren wurden einige Institutsräume sowie die Eingangstüren der Gebäude der Leuphana Universität Lüne- burg (die früher als Kaserne genutzt worden waren) mit neuen Schlössern ausgestattet, die jedoch nicht mit einem herkömmli- chen Schlosszylinder versehen und deswegen auch nicht mit ge- wöhnlichen Schlüsseln zu öffnen waren. Vielmehr bekamen wir statt eines solchen Schlüssels eine Art Chip

17 Actor-Network Theory I Biografie einer Kunststofftüte. Soziologische Beobachtungen zum Verhältnis von Natur und Kultur im Anthropozän Henning Laux Problemstellung Der Mensch avanciert im 20. Jahrhundert zum bestimmenden Faktor bei der biophysischen Veränderung des Planeten Erde. Das Holozän, das mehr als 11.000 Jahre andauerte, wird durch ein neues Erdzeitalter ersetzt, das sogenannte Anthropozän. So lautet jedenfalls die These, die von dem niederländischen Atmosphärenchemiker Paul Crutzen (2002) in jüngster Zeit for- muliert wurde. Der Begriff

Conclusion: Actor-Network Theory and Literary Criticism [T]he world is a millipede that inches forward on millions of real conversations.1 looking baCk The initial concern of my project was the treatment of ‘the contemporary urban’ in a number of considerably lengthy and detailed city narratives. They presented a trend of ‘discovering’ and describing the city in very individual ways. They also resort to different individual means of emphasizing their concerns about the city and the authenticity of their subjective experience and descriptions of it. Their

Avatars Don’t Kill People, Players Do! Actor-Network-Theory, Mediation, and Violence in Avatar-Based Videogames FRANK FETZER In this chapter, I will apply Bruno Latour’s actor-network-theory to address how the avatar co-shapes the player’s program of action, especially concerning vio- lent acts. The avatar functions primarily as instrument that mediates how the player perceives and acts in the game world. 1 Nonetheless, this instrument often has strong narrative aspects, which make it difficult to grasp as a tool alone. The lines between

architecture. In the following study, I pursue the demand for earthly accounts into a ‘build- ing-on-the-move’ made by Latour and Yaneva (ibid. 87), and turn to the process of spacing as a way of exploring the multiple dimensions of the monospace. What such an approach prioritises is the rich life buildings possess in reality. Explor- ing the monospace as a field of possibilities with the help of actor-network-theory (ANT) (Latour 2005), this book aims to enrich the understanding of (architectural) space as a complex process emerging out of the shared agency between

Abstract

In contrast to buildings divided by walls, monospace buildings are determined far less by its shell than by a reciprocal relationship between space and practices, objects, materials, and human bodies. Using the example of such one-room-architectures, this book explores the potential of an actor-network-theory (ANT) approach to space in the field of architecture. Sabine Hansmann focuses on the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich, England by Foster Associates (1978) to investigate the mutual entanglement of people, objects and building. She traces the work that is necessary in »doing« space and thus suggests a re-conceptualisation of space in architectural theory.
