Anaïs Nony, PhD
Over the last decade, I have published articles in journals such as Philosophy Today, Cultural Critique, and Parallax as well as book chapters in edited volumes.
Taken together, this body of work addresses debates about how technology and science shape and affect societies. My work questions the impact of technologies on psychic and social life. It engages cybernetics, artificial intelligence, and governmental technologies of behavioural surveillance and control to address critical changes in the structure and formation of contemporary societies.
My current preoccupations are fuelled by the relationship between art and innovation, culture and nature, and science and technology.
