Screening- FIXED: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement
From Botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more "upgradeable" than ever. But how much of it can we alter and still be human? What do we gain or lose in the process? The award-winning documentary "Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement" explores the social impact of human augmentation. Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, Fixed rethinks “disability" and "normalcy" by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever.
Presented by the Communication Department, the Ronneberg Fund and the Biology Department, the Beck Fund and the English Department, and the Psychology Department. In conjunction with QS-349: "The Trouble with Normal: Normalization, Discourse and Power."
