April 12, 2017 – Ewa Domanska, “Unbecoming Human: Necrotic Metamorphosis”
Necrotic metamorphosis is the biological transformation of the body after death. Humus, trees containing chemical elements drawn from human bodies, diamonds, and vestiges, all constitute figurations of the post-human. Professor Domanska describes manifestations of natural and technical metamorphosis, anticipating the future emergence of various new species.
Ewa Domanska is Professor of History at Adam Mickiewicz University, and Visiting Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stanford University.
