Unearthing the Human: A Posthuman Approach to Human Evolution and Education for Sustainable Development

By Simon Ceder

Chair: Liz Jackson

Over the last 15 years, there has been increasing interest in using posthuman approaches in edu-cational research, particularly in early childhood education, but also in research methodology and curriculum studies. This seminar presents an overview of this development. It also proposes ways to introduce post-human perspectives into two areas that so far have been fairly untouched by this approach, namely philosophy of education and education for sustainable development. This introduction will be performed using the example of human evolution.

Simon Ceder received his PhD in Education from Lund Uni-versity Sweden 2016 with the thesis “Cutting Through Water: Towards a Posthuman Theory of Educational Relationality”. Before becoming a researcher, he was working as a high school teacher and teacher educator in questions regarding gender and equal treatment. Currently, Dr. Ceder is a senior lecturer at University of Skövde teaching educational courses and starting up a new research project with a focus on human evolution.
