Trans-Humanities

Reflecting on the specificity of Korean humanistic knowledge, the future of humanity, and posthuman conditions


The EIH is leading the theorization and globalization of Trans-Humanities with its focus on posthumanism and trans-boundary knowledge.
The EIH has worked on the Humanities Korea (HK) Project under the heading “Trans-Humanities: Reimagining and Reconstructing the Human Sciences” supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea since 2007. In the first phase of the project, we conducted research on transcultural experiences to ascertain the potential of Trans-Humanities. In the second phase, we sought to systemize the methodologies for studying transcultural phenomena and glocal knowledge. Currently, in the third phase of the HK Project, our research is focused on posthumanism and the trans-boundary knowledge with the aim of devising a new paradigm for humanities research on human beings and knowledge.
Phase 01: Examining Paradigms of Humanities Research and Developing Trans-Humanities Knowledge
- to investigate transcultural experiences and construct a model for Trans-Humanities
- to research glocality, gender, and multimedia

Phase 02: Making Trans-Humanities Systematic and Practical

Phase 03: New Possibilities of the Korean Humanities: EIH as a Global Hub for Trans-Humanities
