Round-table: More than Human: Posthumanism, Human-Technological Relations, Bioethics

The ‘Posthumanism: Cinema Philosophy Media’ Roundtable Series presents:

MORE THAN HUMAN: Posthumanism, Human-Technological Relations, and Bioethics

March 29, 2022 @ 7:00 P.M.

Zoom Meeting:

Biohacking, biomedical advancements, bioengineering, and transhumanist hopes, aspirations and fixations – How do technological advancements extend what it means to be human?

This roundtable discussion seeks to break down the barriers between different perspectives upon and methods of analysis of transhumanism, biohacking, and bioethics. From film studies, to a cultural studies lens on biohacking as a subculture, to the latest mind-body interface technologies, how we take up our relationships to and with technological advancements is central to how we understand what it means to be (or not to be) human.
