The Posthuman Lab was founded by
Dr. Çağdaş Dedeoğlu in 2021.
Research in this lab is geared toward advancing posthumanist perspectives for onto-epistemic plurality. We seek to understand the world and the worlds beyond humanist, anthropocentric assumptions, and techno-capitalist utilitarianism.
This aim is supported by three objectives:
1) undisciplined rationality,
2) creative criticism, and
3) justice for all.
We welcome researchers who are interested in taking on new projects.
