Forthcoming talks in 2021-22

Originally scheduled for September, I am now going to Dublin (Trinity College) on 10th Dec this year to be on a panel alongside Catherine Malabou (keynote) on the topic “Philosophy and the Brain, Toward a Critical Neuroscience”.

In early 2022 I have also been invited to do a talk on my latest book – A Sleepwalker’s Guide to Social Media – at the Department of Communication & Media Studies, York University, Canada on 28th Jan 2022 – 4pm GMT. This will be online. More details to follow.
