Dear readers,

you are probably worried about the recent developments of artificial intelligence and the ever more constant presence of robots in our daily life. Far from mere sci-fi discussions, these topics bring many social, ethical and political discussions to the fore. That's why we want to have you at Mecila's event on socionatures and humanoid robots.  

We are also happy to bring you a load of new articles from our Working Paper Series. We hope you enjoy the reading!

Mecila Team
Upcoming Event: From Socionatures to Humanoid Robots - Transdisciplinary Perspectives on the Relations between Humans and Non-Humans
We are living in increasingly technological times in which humanoid robots are gaining agency in social life. This is why we want to discuss from different scientific perspectives how relations between humans and non-humans are defined, negotiated and transformed.

The debate will take place at Goethe Institut-São Paulo on July 30th, from 5 to 7 pm and will be open to the public!

You can find further details at Mecila's site. Keep also an eye on our Facebook event for upatdates and the full schedule.
