Keynote: Miriam Abelson
In the wake of environmental catastrophe, developing knowledge on animal and artificial intelligences, and the living legacy of coloniality, we are once again faced with these eternally recurring questions: What is the human? What is beyond the human? What are the consequences of shifting conceptualizations of the human? Many schools of thought examining eco-criticism, posthumanism, post-colonialism, and more now confront these previously established boundaries, interrogating the ways in which our construction of ‘the human’ and consciousness has left us blind to other agencies and existences in the world.
Death casts a long shadow. Its significance is not merely qua biological event, but as something that compels a response from us throught out lives. Our responses have varied widely, according to what death is taken to be and which deaths (e.g., animal, environmental, that of others, one's own) are taken to be relevant. Mourning rites, martyrdom, and philosophical consolation: the centrality of these and other such responses within religious forms of life attests to the power and productivity of death as a feature of being mortal.

(Im)possibility marks a limit of available information, a threshold of representation, a cessation of action. Thinking at the limits of the possible gives rise to a specific set of issues: how might we articulate that which cannot be said? How might we orient ourselves toward that for which no available theory or representation is adequate?
