Rosi Braidotti’s Summer School 2020
“Posthuman Convergences: Theories and Methodologies”
will take place on
17-21 August 2020
Utrecht, the Netherlands
The intensive course “Posthuman Convergences” offers an overview of contemporary debates around the ‘posthuman turn’, in the framework of Braidotti’s brand of critical theory. It explores the implications of the posthuman convergence of posthumanism and postanthropocentrism for the constitution of subjectivity, the production of knowledge and the practice of the academic humanities. How can scholarship in the critical humanities move beyond the old dualities in which Man/Anthropos defined himself, beyond the hierarchical production of sexualized, racialized and naturalized others as excluded from humanity ? To what extent do current posthuman forms of knowledge critique anthropocentrism and Eurocentric humanism?
