Remaking the Human: Technoscience, Dignity, and the Meaning of Progress
Ideas of the human—of what humanity is and what it can be—have long been bound up with narratives of progress. But how does our understanding of the human change in a time when "the human" is a scientifically knowable and technologically transformable object? Is it possible to have a shared conception of human identity, dignity, rights, and progress anymore? What does this mean for concepts of human flourishing--now and in the future? Join us and our panelists for this important discussion.

Anya Bernstein, professor of anthropology at Harvard University and award-winning documentary filmmaker
