Dear All,

Please find below info about a wee lecture Iım giving in a couple of weeks.
It may appeal to some of you. Weıre hoping to live stream, but itıd be great
to see some friendly faces from afar.

Posthuman Lifestyles: Has the Future Arrived?
Inaugural lecture of Professor Andy Miah
University of the West of Scotland
23 March, 2010 @ the CCA, Glasgow, 6pm (arrivals)

The year 2010 marks the 10-year anniversary of two technological revolutions
­ the genetic and the digital. It is also one of the most prominent years
projected as Œthe futureı in 20th century science fiction. Professor Miahıs
inaugural lecture will discuss his contribution to imagining the future and
critiquing the present, by outlining the successes and failures of an
emerging technological culture that marks the end of humanism.
