What is Transhumanism? | Transhumanism Definition | Transhumanism Explained
Transhumanism is an international intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellect and physiology. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations as well as ethical limitations of using such technologies. The most common transhumanist thesis is that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into different beings with abilities so greatly expanded from the natural condition as to merit the label of posthuman beings. …………………………………………………………………………………..

Milton Friedman
Milton Friedman (July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American economist, statistician, and writer who taught at the University of Chicago for more than three decades. He was a recipient of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, and is known for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory, and the complexity of stabilization policy. As a leader of the Chicago school of economics, he profoundly influenced the research agenda of the economics profession. A survey of economists ranked Friedman as the second most popular economist of the twentieth century after John Maynard Keynes, and The Economist described him as "the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century ... possibly of all of it." Friedman's challenges to what he later called "naive Keynesian" (as opposed to New Keynesian) theory began with his 1950s reinterpretation of the consumption function, and he became the main advocate opposing activist Keynesian government policies. In the late 1960s, he described his own approach (along with all of mainstream economics) as using "Keynesian language and apparatus" yet rejecting its "initial" conclusions.

Jim Crow laws
The Jim Crow laws were racial segregation laws enacted between 1876 and 1965 in the United States at the state and local level. They mandated de jure racial segregation in all public facilities in Southern states of the former Confederacy, with, starting in 1890, a "separate but equal" status for African Americans. The separation in practice led to conditions for African Americans that tended to be inferior to those provided for white Americans, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages. De jure segregation mainly applied to the Southern United States. While Northern segregation was generally de facto, there were patterns of segregation in housing enforced by covenants, bank lending practices, and job discrimination, including discriminatory union practices for decades. Some examples of Jim Crow laws are the segregation of public schools, public places, and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms, restaurants, and drinking fountains for whites and blacks. The U.S. military was also segregated, as were federal workplaces, initiated in 1913 under President Woodrow Wilson, the first Southern president since 1856. His administration practiced overt racial discrimination in hiring, requiring candidates to submit photos. This video is targeted to blind users.

Os estudos Queer entre os saberes insurgentes com Larissa Pelúcio e Richard Miskolci
Palestra com Larissa Pelúcio e Richard Miskolci durante o I Seminário Queer realizado em 2015, no Sesc Vila Mariana. Foram dois dias de debates sobre Cultura e Política; Educação, Saúde e Aprendizados; Gênero e Sexualidade e Contra-Hegemonias. O eixo de discussão final tem como objetivo situar os estudos queer entre as vertentes críticas de pensamento que, após a década de 1960, se insurgiram contra a hegemonia disciplinar, assim como os diferentes feminismos e os estudos pós-coloniais e decoloniais. O objetivo é trazer elementos para compreender o pensamento queer como um saber insurgente e contra-hegemônico a desenvolver ferramentas conceituais e políticas para a transformação social na esfera do desejo, do gênero e da sexualidade. A Teoria Queer surge da confluência de vertentes radicais do feminismo e dos estudos gays e lésbicos, e propõe uma crítica à hegemonia heterossexual, interpretada como uma imposição cultural que permeia o discurso e a prática em diversos âmbitos da realidade social, cultural e política. Essa temática foi apresentada por pesquisadores brasileiros e internacionais de destaque na discussão da Teoria Queer, com especial destaque para a filósofa Judith Butler, uma das principais referências sobre o tema no mundo. De interesse para educadores, estudantes, pesquisadores interessados nas temáticas da sexualidade, do gênero e dos saberes insurgentes, as discussões do I Seminário Queer, realizado pelo Sesc em parceria com a Revista Cult, pretendem aguçar o olhar para as formas menos visíveis de normalização corporal e subjetiva vigentes na sociedade contemporânea. Com Judith Butler, Marie-Helène Bourcier, Richard Miskolci, Carla Rodrigues, Karla Bessa, Leandro Colling, Guacira Lopes Louro, Jorge Leite Junior, Pedro Paulo Gomes Pereira, Berenice Bento, Marcia Tiburi e Larissa Pelúcio. Larissa Pelúcio É professora de Antropologia na UNESP (Bauru/Marília). Doutorou-se em Ciências Sociais pela UFSCar com uma pesquisa sobre a forma como travestis paulistas eram interpeladas pelo modelo preventivo de aids, depois, em pós-doutorado na UNICAMP, investigou a inserção delas no mercado transnacional do sexo e, mais recentemente, tem voltado sua produção para o queer decolonial e os usos contemporâneos das mídias digitais. Richard Miskolci É professor associado da UFSCar e pesquisador do CNPq. Doutor em Sociologia pela USP, com estágios sênior da Universidade de Michigan e da Califórnia, co-organizou o primeiro dossiê de estudos queer publicado no Brasil, além de ter publicado diversos artigos e livros nessa vertente de investigação. Coordena o Quereres – Núcleo de Pesquisa em Diferenças, Gênero e Sexualidade. Anna Paula Vencato (mediadora) É professora titular da Universidade Paulista (UNIP) e pesquisadora associada do Quereres - Núcleo de Pesquisa em Diferenças, Gênero e Sexualidade da UFSCAR. É doutora em Antropologia pela UFRJ. • 01:35 Início da fala de Richard Miskolci • 27:25 Início da fala de Larissa Pelúcio
