Mark B. N. Hansen

is the James B. Duke Professor in the Program in Literature and in the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies at Duke University, as well as co-founder of Duke’s pioneering Program in Computational Media Arts & Cultures and co-founder of the s-1: Speculative Sensation Lab. In work that ranges across a host of disciplines and areas, Hansen mines philosophical resources in order to explore and theorize the technological exteriorization of the human and the technical distribution of sensibility currently underway in our world today. Hansen is the author of Bodies in Code: Interfaces with New Media, New Philosophy for New Media, and Embodying Technesis: Technology Beyond Writing, and ­Feed-Forward: On the Future of Twenty-First-Century Media. In dialogue with French philosopher Gilbert Simondon, Hansen’s current research theorizes information as a process of individuation across biotic-abiotic divides and at multiple scales.
