Moderating “Dislocating the Human: Crossing Divides of Species and Form” Panel at Speculative Visions, UC Berkeley, Mar. 15, 2013

Although I was not accepted as a presenter to UC Berkeley’s “Speculative Visions of Race, Technology, Science, and Survival” conference (March 15-16, 2013), I am honored to be able to help and contribute by serving as moderator for the “Dislocating the Human” panel (the scheduled moderator was unexpectedly unavailable).  Thank you to conference goers and organizers, particularly Alisa Bierria, for giving me the opportunity to participate!
