Existing conceptions of the ‘human’ and its boundaries are challenged by technological and scientific developments, including those in genetic engineering, artificial intelligence and animal cognition. Transforming existing philosophical and cultural debates regarding the legacies of humanism and human values, the posthumanities aim to assess the ethical implications of these developments.
This project will bring together European posthumanities experts and early career researchers in a series of workshops and network events, to facilitate debate and develop public discourse by engaging with scientists, researchers and policy makers.
Each workshop will address a key area in posthumanities scholarship: animal welfare, bioethics, and artificial intelligence.
