Dr. Philip Butler

Assistant Professor of Theology and Black Posthuman Artificial Intelligence Systems

About the speaker

Philip Butler is an international scholar whose work primarily focuses on the intersections of neuroscience, technology, spirituality and Blackness. He uses the wisdom of these spaces to engage in critical and constructive analysis on Black posthumanism, artificial intelligence and pluriversal future realities. He is also the founder of the Seekr Project, a distinctly Black conversational artificial intelligence with mental health capacities. 

Dr. Butler is Partner Director of Iliff’s AI Institute where he leads the 8020 project, where the institute works to change how computers see people, relate to culturally iterative languages and build the bones for a data ownership model that hopefully creates a relational framework for the way AI is made around the globe. 

He is also the author of Black Transhuman Liberation Theology: Spirituality and Technology and most recently the editor of Critical Black Futures: Speculative Theories and Explorations. He had published in journals such as the The Black Scholar, The Journal of Posthuman Studies and the Journal of Future Studies. He is currently working on his second monograph Still Black Posthuman: A Theory of Uncertainty and Disorder.

The conference is scheduled for October 27, 2022, in person at the Omni Interlocken Hotel

Programming will be relevant for CCCS Student Affairs staff, those interested in Student Leadership and Equity, as well as faculty and instructors teaching both online and f2f classes. This conference will offer a diverse slate of programming, as it follows more than two years of CCCS cancellations and postponements, and will combine several systemwide PD experiences into one. Of note: Teaching Excellence grant recipients will be presenting special sessions on their work from the year. In addition, colleagues from other institutions are welcome and encouraged to attend, with the understanding that some programming may be most relevant to the CCCS-affiliated. We look forward to seeing you!

Travel funds may be available at the discretion of your home college. Please reach out to your supervisor to inquire.

Special compensation for faculty and instructors is at the discretion of your home college. Please reach out to your supervisor to inquire.

With CCCOnline’s pending transition to Colorado Online @, the CCCOnline CONNECT Conference has been absorbed into this conference.

We will be tracking attendance and after the event, will provide certificates of attendance on request. CCCOnline instructors will have their attendance added to their PD records within a month of the conference.

Business casual or smart casual attire is recommended for the conference.

Special thanks to all our sponsors!
