In Media Res this week: Posthumanism and Media

This week's In Media Res might be of some interest to HASTACers as it deals with Posthumanism and Media. Each day this week there will be a short response to a piece of media, all dealing with concepts and consequences of the posthuman. Fellow HASTACer Ed Chang and I wrote the post appearing on Thursday which will discuss Bioshock. Below are some details from the website.
