ABOUT

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.
