Symbiotic Robotics ( robots as a species)

Utrechtse Boekenbar Westerkade 2, Utrecht

No longer purely figures in science fiction, robots make up a progressively larger part of society due to developments in artificial intelligence. As we guide ourselves through our evolving relationships with robots assisting us in a diverse range of disciplines, such as well-being, health, and sex, we form our own ideas about what human-machine interaction we find comforting, exciting and/or helpful. Our relationship with robots grows closer and

Cli-Fi Narratives -Telling you NOW

Utrechtse Boekenbar Westerkade 2, Utrecht

Often going beyond the standard discourse, climate fiction depicts alternative scenario’s to climate change. For example, in Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer, a team of scientists explore the expanding ‘Area X’ to document its mutated flora and fauna, causing us to wonder how species will adapt to climate change. Not only confronting us with how climate change affects ecosystems, individuals and societies, cli-fi illuminates actions to tackle the overwhelming

Furthermore, stories like Arrival (2016) show that our perception of time

Witchcraft Foretells Science

Besiendershuis Steenstraat 26-28, Nijmegen

Before the Enlightenment, magic was intertwined with daily life. The use of charms, divination, and healing were all common practice. People didn’t believe in the division between matter and spirit and imagined the cosmos as a living organism, populated by occult forces. Backed by Church and State, this magical view of the world was destroyed to make place for a more rational, mechanical philosophy. During this transition from

Philosophy Salon: Going blank: Loss of emotions in the era of technology

Tetterode Complex Bilderdijkstraat 165-B, Amsterdam

Going blank: Loss of emotions in the era of technology Self-control is a prized character trait in ancient philosophy. As children, we’re taught to get our emotions under control.
