This class investigates life as an emergent phenomenon across the disciplines of biophilosophy, art, art history, literary criticism, and information studies. Students will read key texts from these disciplines, evaluate recent art commenting on bioinformatics, and design their own creative projects. Throughout the quarter we will ask questions such as: What do art and science have in common? What is an emergent phenomenon? What is special about living things? Students should expect to leave this class with knowledge of key issues in phenomenological philosophy, bioart, biophilosophy, postcolonial, and complexity studies.
