        Subject: Virtual reading group: How We Became Posthuman

Dear friends and colleagues,

I'm reaching out to gauge interest in a virtual summer reading group for
Katherine Hayles's How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics,
Literature, and Informatics 

The basic idea is that we'll keep a pace of approximately one chapter per week
and convene three times over summer (probably mid-June, mid-July, and mid-
August) over Zoom. If there's enough interest, I'll send out a Doodle poll to
figure out people's availability for specific dates

I'll take responsibility for arranging logistics and for keeping the space
respectful, but I'm imagining this as an informal salon. I'm reaching out to
folks from a variety of backgrounds (physicists, artists, narrative theorists,
digital humanists, and disability scholars, to name a few) to approach the text
on equal footing, regardless of institutional certification/position/affiliation

No commitment requirements; no discussion agendas. Just tune in as you're able,
and the conversations will revolve around whatever things we find most
interesting about the text

If this seems up your alley, please send me an email at<>. Likewise, please feel welcome to
reach out about questions, concerns, or access needs

All the best,

Sean Yeager, M.Sc., M.A.
