A zero-credit seminar, “Transhumanism: Narratives and Implications,” is being offered every other Monday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. in Cudahy Hall, room 114. The next seminar is Sept. 24.
It is led by Drs. Gerry Canavan, associate professor of English, and Katherine Hayles, chair of the Association of Marquette University Women.
Although it has various expressions, transhumanism in general refers to the idea that human evolution is incomplete and will soon take an unprecedented turn at the singularity, the point at which humans develop a technologically enhanced intelligence that surpasses their own cognitive powers.
The course is sponsored by the Center for the Advancement of the Humanities and the Association of Marquette University Women in Humanistic Studies. It is open to students, staff, faculty and community members.
Please contact Canavan, firstname.lastname@example.org, for registration and access to the readings.
