Can computers write poems? Can humans be fully digitised? Is it wrong to murder in computer games? In this subject, we will respond to such questions by engaging with a range of texts about the future of humanity and its relationship with technology. New technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, social media, deep fakes, and cybernetics raise vital questions about how we make meaning and shape our conceptual understanding of the world. By engaging with texts (such as computer games, films, podcasts, poems, and social media posts) that address these questions, we will develop our understanding of the digital humanities, with a focus on how future technology may shape and challenge literature and philosophy.
