Sorgner @ Future of the Humanities November 16, 2018
Ewha Womans University, Seoul

On the 16th of November, Sorgner was invited to present the implication of his reflections concerning the Future of the Humanities at a conference at Ewha Womans University in Seoul

Thereby, he will stress the following insight:

In the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, humanities students need to be able reflect upon the impacts of emergent technologies (Posthuman Studies), need to know what digital technologies can do (Digital Literacy), and need to be able to include new technologies within their research (Digital Humanities). The inclusion of these disciplines into the humanities could be referred to as metahumanities, as it goes beyond the humanities, but it is also inclusive concerning the reflections on the latest emerging developments. Meta means both beyond as well as in between, so that the term can capture both elements in an appropriate manner.

Some aspects of his reflections can already be accessed in the following article of his:
