Thursday 26th May & Friday 27th May, Gower & Wedderburn Common Room, Royal Holloway University
Please register your attendance by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title "Beyond Human Registration''.
The Beyond Human Symposium aims to bring together speakers and thinkers to consider “beyond-human communication” on the themes of environmental and paranormal semiotics, and the ethics of identifying and attributing agency to non-human forms. We hope this will help to generate discussion and bring attention to this burgeoning research area, as part of a climate strategy of re-animating landscape or moving the focus of intelligence away from an anthropocentric value-system. Our keynote speakers Gyrus- founder of dreamflesh.com, and filmmaker Roz Moritmor- creator of The Deathless Woman, will be responding to the themes "Nature & Intoxication" and "Haunting, Landscape & Media" over two days, followed by panel discussions with Techne researchers.
