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.
