Marc Roux

Marc Roux is an Affiliate Scholar and Advisory Board member of the IEET who lives in Greece. He holds a bachelor of science, but his doctoral studies in medieval history have led him to an ongoing investigation of the identities and boundaries between the peoples of Europe. He has been an activist in the trade union movement and parties of the Left, and a teacher in the Parisian suburbs for ten years. In 2009, he co-founded the AFT - Technoprog, a French transhumanist/technoprogressive organization. Through Technoprog, he organized number of conferences in Paris on various aspects of transhumanism, three of which were at the University of the Sorbonne and TransVision 2014, the first transhumanist international colloquium in France.

Marc has been interviewed often on transhumanism and biopolitics in the French press, included by France Inter, France Culture, Liberation,  L’Obs, Marianne, 20 Minutes, Politis, etc. He contributed to the collective L’humain augmenté (Hermes edition, 2013) and wrote TECHNOPROG, le transhumanisme au service du progrès social (with Didier Coeurnelle, FYP edition, 2016). He is frequently consulted for universitary studies, others think tanks and even political parties.
