Converging Epistemologies: Science and Humanities in Dialogue

February 23, 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Korean Studies Building Add to Calendar

Converging Epistemologies will bring together scholars from different fields to discuss the pressing issues of today. We will be holding three public dialogues at UH Mānoa in February and March on three topics: Life in the Anthropocene, Borders and Boundaries, and Posthumanism and Transhumanism. The events are free, open to the public, and will include light refreshments. Each event will be a 1-hour moderated dialogue between a panel of 3–4 scholars, during which we will engage with questions related to the topic, drawn up by the organizers beforehand. We will also incorporate questions from the public through the blog on our website, as well as during the open question time at the end of each event. These events will be lively, entertaining, and informative. Among our excellent panelists, our events will include speakers such as Dr. Kim Binsted, principal investigator of the Nasa-funded HI-SEAS project, which conducts long-term space exploration simulations on the Big Island; Dr. Veronica Bindi, who was part of the team that constructed the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, now on the International Space Station; Dr. Kamanamaikalani Beamer, whose work brings together native Hawaiian knowledge and expertise in Law; and Dr. Jaimey H. Faris, whose current project, Liquid Archives, explores the ocean as a 3.8 billion-year old medium now keeping track of our global economy. Event Dates and Topics: Life in the Anthropocene: February 23, 6:30pm–8pm. Korean Studies Building, UH Mānoa. Borders and Boundaries: March 8, 6:30pm–8pm. Location pending.
