Professor Rosi Braidotti will present her new book "The Posthuman" (Polity Press, 2013) during an official launch event that will take place on 23rd May at London Review Bookshop, London.
"The Posthuman" offers both an introduction and major contribution to contemporary debates on the posthuman. Digital ‘second life’, genetically modified food, advanced prosthetics, robotics and reproductive technologies are familiar facets of our globally linked and technologically mediated societies. This has blurred the traditional distinction between the human and its others, exposing the non-naturalistic structure of the human.
Braidotti argues that the challenge of the posthuman condition consists in seizing the opportunities for new social bonding and community building, while pursuing sustainability and empowerment.
More about the book: see Polity Books website.

Centre for the Humanities this year has designed three commemorative conferences for the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Utrecht: Edward Said Memorial Conference in April, "The Colonial Legacy" conference in June and "The Idea of the University" conference in September.
Commemorative events are co-designed with the Treaty of Utrecht organization, which is responsible for the general cultural programme of the commemoration and the many Utrecht University staff members who are actively involved in the Centre for the Humanities, notably the Descartes Centre and the Focus Area ‘Identities and Cultures’.
