Applications now open!

The Masterclass will focus on definitions of post-humanism and the problems that post-humanism creates for contemporary forms of communication. Such problems relate to the use of avatars and virtual humans (among other issues that will be discussed). As more and more of our communication is based on the use of such devices to communicate (esp. in times of COVID restrictions) the Masterclass will be useful to academic teachers working in the Humanities.
Presentation and discussion (50 min+ 10 min discussion); Workshop discussion of 5 questions which will enable participants to go deeper into the relevant issues: 60 min. All discussions will be in English, with short summaries of discussions in Greek (if required and if Greek participants are present).
