Posthuman Knowledge(s)

Utrecht Summer School course by Prof. Rosi Braidotti
August 19-23, 2019

In 2019, Braidotti’s intensive course will focus on “Posthuman Knowledge(s)”. The aim of the course is to offer a critical overview of contemporary debates about the implications of the ‘posthuman turn’, for knowledge production and research in the Posthumanities. Braidotti will apply her specific brand of critical feminist posthuman theory to the analysis of fast-growing fields such as the Environmental and Digital Humanities, asking questions such as: what is the subject of the Posthumanities? How do these new fields of knowledge affect the constitution of subjectivity and the practice of the academic (post) humanities today? How can posthuman knowledge assist us in moving beyond the patterns of exclusion of the sexualized, racialized and naturalized “others” that were excluded from humanity and disqualified as subjects of knowledge? How can we learn to think beyond anthropocentrism?
