THE NEW HUMAN

Call for Reflections/Provocations

Contributions are to be published on medium.com

As a way to continue the discussions at The NEW HUMAN Symposium, we invite participants (audience and keynote speakers) to contribute to an online publication. Topics should focus on the theme and the discussions from the symposium.

Formats, style and tone

We invite a variety of formats. We are happy to receive text, images, audio, video, code or any combination thereof. The contributions will be published as a special issue on medium.com (as inspiration, see this publication on Openness).

Please keep it short—maximum 1000 words.

We hope to bridge a number of disciplines and perspectives. This means that your contribution should be targeting a general, non-specialist audience. Think of it as writing for the culture section of a daily newspaper rather than an academic journal.
