ETH Conference 2018

For a few years now, transhumanism has been a movement of thought whose influence can no longer be denied, both internationally within the media and in the academic, political, and economic worlds. However, recognising the emergence of a phenomenon is not the same as knowing it. Many questions remain unanswered about the very nature of transhumanism(s).

The purpose of ethconference2018 is to analyze the current state of the art on these questions, exploring transhumanisms and their narratives. More broadly, the conference welcomes all abstract, panel and participatory workshop proposals related to “transhumanism”, “posthumanism, “hyperhumanism” and their many related topics. Proposals from a wide range of disciplines are warmly welcomed.

The conference is organised in such way that it will enable different audiences (scholars, professionals, citizens, politicians,…) to intermingle, combining the ambition and usual components of a high-level academic event (talks, panels, round tables,…) and a thought-provoking off-conference range of artistic, pedagogical and cultural activities (audience-focused scientific workshops, participatory forums, ‘predictive justice’ debating, theatre performance, public discussion of a cult film, a transhumanism-themed escape game, and others).
