Congratulations to the 2022-23 “Re-Imagining/Re-Forming” Fellows

2022 – 2023 “Re-Imagining/Re-Forming” Theme: Mindful of recent political, cultural, and environmental upheavals, the Northeastern Humanities Center invites proposals for the 2022-23 academic year on the theme of “Re-imagining/Re-forming.” We seek proposals that address how bedrock notions of social contract are being reconfigured by the disruptions of what some have called Industry 4.0, or the Fourth Industrial Revolution. What are the material implications of recent technological developments—broadly understood, including, for example, AI and biotechnologies—for the humanities, and for the laws and social ordering of what we have traditionally thought of as “the human”? Are we moving towards a digital social contract, and if so, who or what is determining its terms? We invite proposals connected to any dimension of this broad field of inquiry, including literary, artistic, historical, socio-political, economic, ecological, media theoretical, philosophical, linguistic, as well as technology-focused perspectives. Patricia Williams, University Distinguished Professor of Law and Humanities, will lead the year-long interdisciplinary conversation among fellows about their work.
