In our workshop we want to discuss questions that have recently arisen in the context of critical posthumanism. In particular, we want to explore what implications posthumanism as a research perspective may have for rethinking human agency, self-experience, and -description within a general tendency of regarding the human as interrelated node in a network of technological, environmental, media-related, and other non-human factors.
