Kathryn Denning

Associate Professor
York University

Kathryn Denning is an anthropologist and archaeologist at York University in Canada. She specializes in the long view of humanity's history, both past and future, and is particularly interested in ethics -- how we engage with other humans across time, and how we engage with other species, including the extinct, extant, and as-yet-unknown. All this combines in her long-term research focus on humanity's cultural expansion into space, how we imagine our future beyond Earth, and how we anticipate other life that has yet to be discovered.
