What do ancient history and archaeology have to do with science fiction and graphic novels? How can insights from the humanities help us examine the role of artificial intelligence in the contemporary world?

In this seminar Dimosthenis Papamarkos discusses how his training in classics helped him conceptualize his recent graphic novel Bare Bones, integrate specialized knowledge into a narrative aimed at a broad audience, and imagine human-cyborg relations in a post-apocalyptic world.

Discussants: Stathis Gourgouris, Karen Green, and Christos Papadimitriou.

Co-organized with the University Seminar in Modern Greek and the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
