About this event

**All dates provisional**

Today, the body’s intimate functions, including sleep, sex, menstruation, pregnancy and giving birth, and our mental health and wellbeing, can be digitized. Relationalities are forged, including our more-than-human intimacies with technology.

This symposium will explore how the conjoining of data, health and the experience of our bodies shapes how we feel, including the new “moral-intimate-economic” fantasies incorporated into self-monitoring, tracking and online digital health technologies. Speakers will share research that demonstrates the extended postdigital body, as well as how these relationalities reproduce social inequalities, limiting what the body can do and how we feel connected to others.
