Critical Posthumanism Network
(directed by Ivan Callus, Stefan Herbrechter and myself)
The Critical Posthumanism Network aims to connect academics, artists, writers and scientists who are critically and creatively engaging with the emerging new paradigm of “posthumanism” and the “posthumanities”. Members share the view that posthumanism is an exciting area that can be even richer when it allies its appealing interdisciplinary profile with a capacity and readiness for powerful (self-)critique.
The Society for Literature, Science and the Arts
welcomes colleagues in the sciences, engineering, technology, computer science, medicine, the social sciences, the humanities, the arts, and independent scholars and artists. SLSA members share an interest in problems of science and representation, and in the cultural and social dimensions of science, technology, and medicine.
I am currently the President and Executive Director of the European branch: SLSAeu

The td-net is the primary Swiss contact point for researchers and funders in the fields of inter- and trans-disciplinary research and teaching. As a platform, the td-net advances the mutual learning between inter- and transdisciplinary researchers and teachers across thematic fields, languages and countries and thereby supports community building.
