Event description

Description

Posthuman perspectives invite us to de-centre the human and thus re-think our understanding of identity, intentionality and causation. Within such a perspective, we can ask: how to imagine what it might mean to think, to be, to feel and to learn in less human-centric ways? What forms of agency are we prepared to give up? How can different disciplines, such as mathematics, help students appreciate and live in a more-than-human world? Given the environmental conditions of the Anthropocene, we might also ask, what might the world look like without humans? And as educators, we can further ask, what role does education plan in preparing students for such a world?
