The Post-Human Network (PHuN or “Fun”) is a collective of graduate students sponsored by the Center for Philosophical Technologies. PHuN engages in streams of “post-humanist” thought and practice and seeks to move beyond anthropocentrism in the academy and in society. Participants come from a number of disciplines across campus, including Arts Media and Engineering, Geography, and Literature. PHuN aims to facilitate opportunities for collaborative study, creation, and experimentation. Their individual and collective production spans a variety of registers including, but not limited to, art, media, technoscience, urbanism, and design. Our work is influenced by areas of post-humanist thought such as vitalism, enactivism, process, new materialism, left-accelerationism, post-phenomenology, and systems theory.
