Flying out on Thursday to the American Academy of Religion annual meeting in Chicago. I’ll be presenting at the “Religion and Transhumanism” consultation on Saturday and looking forward to meeting various people also interested in that and other things related to science, technology & religion.
I imagine it’ll be an interesting experience in cultural anthropology – the combination of American Halloween (which, in spite of the best efforts of retailers and US-centred TV, we don’t celebrate here in NZ much/at all) and US presidential elections will be make for interesting cultural viewing.
It’s a bit of a long haul to get there – Auckland-San Francisco-Chicago – and I have to hurry back for final assessment and reporting for the year, but hopefully all will go smoothly.
Anyone else going to be there?
