Where do we encounter Promethean creation today and is there such a thing as a post-Promethean agency? What could be the role of literary and cultural studies in thinking about the future of work and technology? The panel discussion brings together experts on agency from a posthumanist perspective and philosophy of technology. The discussion finds its starting point in current discourses on Promethean and post-Promethean agency.
