|Event Tile:||BEING ONE AND MANY. FACES OF THE HUMAN IN THE 21ST CENTURY|
|LOCATION:||Łódź, Poland, Online Event (Webinar)|
The emerging cyborgs, transhumans and posthumans call for an urgent reconsideration of humans as individuals and collectives. The identity of the human in the 21st century eludes the constraining boundaries of definitions underpinned by simplifying and simplified dichotomies. Affecting all the spheres of life, the discoveries and achievements of recent decades have challenged the bipolar categorizations of human and nonhuman, human and animal, or even human and machine, and thus opened the door to transdisciplinary considerations.
Our conference will be dedicated to discussing the new ideas of the human. We will ponder the ways in which contemporary art, natural science, and philosophy transcend the binary concepts of human-nonhuman, natural-artificial, individual-collective, and normal-abnormal.
The conference language is English. There is no registration fee. The conference will be organized entirely on-line. We invite students and PhD students to send their proposals for the panel.
Proposals will be selected from the abstracts (200-300 words) by the Conference Program Committees.
