Event description

Description

From bionic limbs and neural implants to prenatal screening, researchers around the world are hard at work developing a myriad of technologies to fix or enhance the human body. FIXED: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement takes a close look at the drive to be “better than human” and the radical technological innovations that may take us there.


What does “disabled” mean when a man with no legs can run faster than most people in the world? What does “normal” mean when cosmetic surgery procedures have risen over 450 percent in the last fifteen years and increasing numbers of people turn to “smart drugs” every day to get ahead at school or work?


Come and see the critically acclaimed, multi-award winning documentary in association with the University of Sheffield’s newest research institute, iHuman: The Institute for the Study of the Human. Followed by discussion.
