N. Katherine Hayles teaches and writes on the relations of literature, science and technology in the 20th and 21st centuries and has been an influential voice in arts and media discourse for decades. Her book, How We Think: Digital Media and Contemporary Technogenesis, was published by the University of Chicago Press in spring 2012. Other books include How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics, Literature and Informatics, which won the Rene Wellek Prize for the Best Book in Literary Theory for 1998-99, and has been hailed as “the key text which brought posthumanism to broad international attention,” and Writing Machines, which won the Suzanne Langer Award for Outstanding Scholarship. She is Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Program in Literature at Duke University, and Distinguished Professor Emerita at the University of California, Los Angeles.
As part of her tenure as Theorist in Residence, Hayles will be delivering two public lectures in the Los Angeles area in late January, 2019:
- January 23: “Human as Alien: From Frankenstein to Ex Machina and Annihilation.”
- January 26: “Media and/as the Environment”
