Dr Sorelle Henricus
Sorelle Henricus received her PhD from the Department of English Language and Literature, NUS, where she wrote her dissertation on knowledge and critical thought in the 21st century. She is interested in the different ways we can “think” knowledge particularly in the forms they appear today — as techno-science and digital culture. Alongside twentieth and twenty-first century literature, and continental philosophy, some of the objects of her research are bio-medical science, modern and contemporary architecture, and documentary film. She has co-organised and given papers at workshops on both classic and contemporary thinkers in the tradition of critical philosophy, including, Kant, Hegel, Heidegger, Blanchot, Adorno, Derrida, Baudrillard, Virilio, and Nancy.
At Tembusu College she teaches a Junior Seminar entitled 'The Bio-tech Future: Sci-Fi Film and Society'. Through this course, students have the opportunity to examine portrayals of the future in film, and what these might tell us about the way science and technology is perceived in the world today.
