  • Hanna Ellen Guttorm


Here, in this, ‘I’-and-the-multiple-others fumble, move, think, ask, become and write smoothly towards a posthuman (re)search, (re)think, Life with constant searching, thinking, becoming, not-knowing. Towards a living Being, where humanist epistemologies and human are decentered … Towards becoming-imperceptible (no ‘as a’ researcher/expert/anything-else anymore) … Towards an affirmative present.
