We are delighted to invite you to a special event to celebrate the launch of Here Be Monsters by Richard King.

In this timely and provocative book, Richard King argues that modern societies need to develop a more critical attitude to new and emerging technologies. We need, he suggests, to rethink our relationship to our tools from a radically humanistic perspective, enlisting philosophy, anthropology and the arts in the fight against dehumanising machines. It is not enough to let the market decide which technologies are good for us. We need to ask what we want from technology. And the question of what we want is a question about who we are.

Richard King is an author, critic and poet based in Fremantle. His work appears widely, focusing on the relationship between culture and technology.

This event is presented by Pathways at The University of Notre Dame, Monash University Publishing and New Edition Bookshop.
