Conference Summary

A series of intersecting boundaries have defined the human from the mid-19th century to the present: human/animal, civilized/savage, woman/man, mind/machine, and nature/culture. This conference will examine how different disciplines have constructed and contested these boundaries, and will reflect on the legacy of Darwinian frameworks of the 'human' today.
