Making Posthumanism Accessible - An Evening with Writer in Residence Isabel Galleymore
3rd August - 3rd August 2020
What exactly is posthumanism? This new philosophical concept explores questions about what it means to be human, what makes us human, how we explore humanity, and what non-humans mean to us – but such questions are challenging. How can we think about posthumanism’s questions in ways that make sense to us, and which we understand? How can we know it when we see it? Join poet and critic Isabel Galleymore as she unravels this term with examples from a range of poetry
