In the first in a series of three lectures, Craig Calhoun will discuss the problems which arise from putting a secular conception of the human at its centre for our normative and political imagination. These problems are thrown into relief by contemporary discussions about artificial intelligence and new technologies.

Craig Calhoun (@craigjcalhoun) is Professor of Social Sciences at Arizona State University and Centennial Professor at LSE. He is also a previous director of LSE.

Monika Krause is an Associate Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology and co-Director of LSE Human Rights.

LSE Human Rights (@LSEHumanRights) is a trans-disciplinary centre of excellence for international academic research, teaching and critical scholarship on human rights.
