The 14th Annual Limina Conference will explore the visceral, corporeal, and ephemeral dimensions of being human.

We live in a climate of debates about bodily autonomy, population growth, artificial intelligence, and genetic modification. Our bodies are marked by sex, race, age, and health, all of which are contentiously invested with social and political significance. At the same time, discoveries about our past and emerging technologies challenge fixed ideas of what it means to be human. In this way, the lines between our bodies and our humanity are being drawn and re-drawn. Extending beyond the physical, then, how do we understand and express what it means to be human?

The conference is supported by Limina: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies, the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions and the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies.

The conference will be preceded by a public panel:

'With or Without Body: Feeling, Creating and Performing Emotion' is supported by Limina: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies, the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions and the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies.
