Human Futures

A research programme at the Faculty of Arts 

studying the influence of technology on human existence 


Human futures is a research programme at the Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University. We facilitate research between disciplines concerned with the historical and contemporary changes technology can induce on human existence in three distinct areas that call for interdisciplinary collaboration:

  • Technological influences on the human body ranging from gene editing, new medicines and artificial organs to man-machine integration
  • Changes in the human environment in the form of robotics, artificial intelligence and information technologies
  • Representations in popular culture, art, literature and philosophy of imagined human futures.
