Stefan Sorgner Edits New Book Series on Posthuman Studies

The oldest publishing house in the world, Schwabe publishing (founded 1488), deeply rooted in the humanist tradition, embraces the intellectual engagement with one of the most significant debates of our time: Posthuman Studies: From Critical Posthumanism to Transhumanism.

Posthuman Studies is a fully peer reviewed, multidisciplinary series devoted to high-quality analyses of and reflections on what it is to be human in an age of rapid technological, scientific, cultural and social evolution. As the boundaries between human and ‘the other’, technological, biological and environmental, are eroded and perceptions of normalcy are challenged, they have generated a range of ethical, philosophical, cultural, and artistic questions that this series seeks to address. Drawing on theory from critical posthumanism and the normative reflections of transhumanism, it encourages constructive but rigorously critical dialogue through research monographs and edited volumes. The series publishes books on issues such as the consequences of enhancement, especially bioenhancement, transhumanist, and posthumanist accounts of “the human,” and any and all ways in which they impact culture and society. The series encourages submissions from a range of disciplines such as: philosophy, sociology, literary studies, cultural studies, critical theory, media studies, bioethics, medical ethics, anthropology, religious studies, disability studies, gender studies, queer studies, critical animal studies, environmental studies, and the visual arts.The series explicitly targets the international audience. All books will be peer-reviewed, copyedited, and internationally distributed. There are no printing cost subsidies.
