Resurrecting the Body: a technological Easter?

By JubileeCentre 27 Aug 2019

Nanotechnology, cryonics, gene-editing, mind uploading. Such technologies—both real and imagined—offer a rising hope that humans might ‘defeat’ death.

Speakers: Dr Rodica Mocan (Associate Professor of Cinematography and Media, Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca) and Fr. Dragos Herescu (Principal of the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies, Cambridge).
