Building Trans-Humanities Discourses


The EIH holds academic conferences with specific themes each year. These conferences offer the institute an opportunity to share its research findings with renowned scholars at home and abroad, thus widening the horizon of humanities research and creating an international knowledge network with leading thinkers like Homi Bhabha (Harvard University), Robert J. C. Young (New York University), Julian Savulescu (Oxford University), Yoichi Komori (Tokyo University), and Isabelle Moindrot (Universite Paris VIII). Conferences titled “Human and Machine: Posthumanism in Technology, Culture, and the Arts,” “Cultural Hybridity and Migrating Identities,” and “Re-Translate Knowledge” have clearly demonstrated the significance of understanding knowledge formation and human beings in the 21st century.
