The 1st Beyond Humanism Forum was organized by Jaime del Val, Evi Sampanikou, and IEET Fellow Stefan Lorenz Sorgner, who is also responsible for teaching a successful course on “Posthuman Studies” at John Cabot University in Rome. In an interview a former student and recent JCU graduate, Chrysoula Sotiriadi, who took Professor Sorgner’s course “Posthuman Studies: Philosophy, Technology, and Media.” stressed the following: “For me, this was one of the most inspiring classes offered at JCU, and I believe every student in the liberal arts system should take the course. It pushes students to confront many of the most pressing issues of our times. Even though it is rooted in philosophy, topics from a great variety of academic disciplines and aspects of our lifeworld are being tackled.” Here, you can find the entire interview with her:
