POSTHUMANISM FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Welcome to The Posthuman Lab's very first project, Posthumanism for Sustainability (PH4S). The project aims to map posthumanist approaches to sustainability and curate a digital database and repository to support future research efforts in relevant fields.
PH4S was undertaken by a team of four scholars with diverse onto-epistemological backgrounds and scholarly traditions.
Below, you will find the digital repository, including peer-reviewed articles gathered together in our scoping review. Please reach out if you want to contribute to the repository.
This project would not have been possible without the generous support of Yorkville University.
