For centuries, the Western man has fought against his own animality, taking refuge in civilization and culture as a means to counter the return to the origins, or to a zero level of human nature. In reality, science has modified human nature in such a way that humanity finds itself in a radical turning point in its history, having lost the privilege it has always enjoyed for the benefit of unprecedented individuals, manufactured by new technologies.
The aim of the colloquium Return to animality: theoretical perspectives, cultural approaches and artistic manifestations is to create a plural and interdisciplinary space for reflection on these issues, calling for a dialogue between different perspectives and disciplines.
Those interested in participating should send their proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30th.
