 From Euripides’ Bacchae to Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus to Sarah

physical world of consciousness in relation to the post human body - data
made flesh. Secondly, the academic disciplines commonly grouped under the
headings of humanities and arts have seen a shift from the textual to the
performative. The arts and humanities have in common that they study
