Podcast: Humanising Technology in the 21st Century

This post was originally published on this site


In this episode, Matt reflects on our relationship with technology and what possibilities lie ahead for our species! We look at digital and bio-technologies and attempt to redefine what we view as “natural”.

Matt is senior lecturer in post-1980 literature at the University of Birmingham specialising in bringing together insights from the digital and cognitive humanities with (post)phenomenology, posthumanism, and object-oriented philosophy in order to better understand the entanglement of humans and their technological artefacts. His work tends to use e-reading, contemporary experimental literature, and transhuman body modification as case studies for exploring how cognition, knowledge, and materiality become intertwined across human and non-human actors in lively environments.
