Event Description:

This is a two-hour online event following the ‘Everyday embodiment and technology in speculative and science fiction’ symposium which took place on Friday 6 May at the Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds.

The #everydayembodiment schedule featured a mix of academic and creative approaches to the depiction of everyday technologised bodies. Topics covered included posthumanism, disability, memory, anxiety, sleep, prostheses and the importance of conceptions of the future for thinking about embodiment. This will be an opportunity for those who were unable to attend the event in person to discuss the day and the materials presented, alongside providing an opportunity for follow-up discussions for speakers and attendees.

This event is part of the ‘Imagining/Experiencing Disability, Care and Embodiment’ work-stream of the ‘Imagining Technology for Disability Futures’ project and is supported by the Wellcome Trust, Collaborative Award 214963/Z/18/Z.
