Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Audiovisual Posthumanism, edited by Evi D. Sampanikou.

This volume deals with the challenges posthumanism meets as a successor to postmodernism in the field of artistic, literary and aesthetic expression. It also explores the ways social sciences and humanities are affected by posthumanism, and it asks how posthumanism can be an expansion of humanism in the contemporary world, rather than a transcendence of humanism. The chapters’ authors come from different countries, cultural backgrounds and study areas to present a varied perspective on posthumanism.

To read a full summary of the book and to read a 30-page sample extract, which includes the table of contents, please visit the following link:
