Doctoral Candidate Steve Kapica publishes article in Law Review

Mr. Kapica’s article, “‘I Don’t Feel Like a Copy’: Posthuman Legal Personhood and Caprica,” appears in the Griffith Law Review 23.4.  Kapica’s article argues that the short-lived science fiction series Caprica (2009–2010) presents its audience with a vision of a future civilisation grappling with redefining the human in the face of exponential technological advancement. The article, which grew out of a conference presentation at the Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities in 2013, places Caprica in conversation with posthumanism and the law.  Mr. Kapica is currently working on his dissertation, “Negotiating Obscenity: Rhetorical Delivery, Kairos, and Popular Culture’s Mediation of the Obscene.”
