Description

New technologies and scientific imagination rearrange the boundary that we identify as the beginning and end of life. New techno-social constellations, such as the ever-increasing presence of digital avatars and genetic screenings, implore us to reconsider and transcend the existing definitions of life and death. Through a multidisciplinary approach, this volume explores how the limitations and perceived finality of life and death are reconstituted through engagements with modern technology.

Martin Eggen Mogseth is a PhD candidate in Social Anthropology at the University of Bergen, Norway. His current research aims to explore some of the different ways we make sense of our world and the limits and transcendence of such sense-making.

Fartein Hauan Nilsen is a PhD Candidate of social anthropology at the University of Bergen, Norway. His current research explores the social and cultural dimensions of generative and conversational Artificial Intelligence.
