Transhumanism, Posthumanism, and the Haunting of Machines
In Transhumanism, Posthumanism, and the Haunting of Machines, we form questions about what constitutes ‘the human’ in the 21st century, a time when the line between human, animal, corporation, technology, and environment is becoming increasingly uncertain.
The group also considers the relationship between technology, the occult, and the spiritual. Materials include a first person account of rejecting a lifelong faith - only to find a familiar spiritual hunger in transhumanist theory - and an exploration of haunting around technology by Natalie Kane.
