Event description

Description

It’s been nearly twenty years since Katherine Hayles published her landmark book How We Became Posthuman. Rather than enjoying a brief vogue and then fading from the scene, her account of the posthuman condition has continued to ramify and gain importance across the many fields of posthumanities research. In this presentation, Hayles will sketch a history of the posthumanities from their beginnings in the cybernetics of the 1940s to their recent expansion through new cognitive technologies, and discuss the likeliest paths of their future development.

Free and open to the public. Pre-registration requested.
