Spring 2016 Multispecies Salon Events:
Gut Reactions: The Microbiome and Human Nature
March 30th-31st, Butler College, Studio '34 Cafe
Microbes living in human bodies can influence processes like digestion, immunity, and even cognition. Human nature is being reframed as a multispecies relationship. Departing from the fact that our bodies are environments for bacteria, fungi, and protists, we will ask: How has the human been shaped by microbial companions? What does the microbial geography of our bodies, our homes, and our pets look like? What are the political and economic implications of sensing and surveying invisible life? As technological and medical interventions reconfigure the microbiome, how is this shaping the future of the human species?
