View Arcangelo Sassolino’s humanlike machines, then join a discussion of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Phillip K. Dick’s 1968 literary masterpiece that inspired the film Blade Runner. The discussion will be led by Nicholas E. Miller, a Postdoctoral Fellow in the English Department at Washington University in St. Louis, who teaches courses on early American literature, Gothic fiction, science fiction, and culture studies. Miller is currently teaching a course on “the posthuman” in American literature and culture, a course that — like Arcangelo Sassolino’s exhibition and Philip K. Dick’s novel — asks us to question what it means to be human.
