First Digital version of the Utrecht Summer School course ‘Posthuman Convergences’ was a great Success

Last August the 2020-edition of the Summer School course ‘Posthuman Convergences’ took place. Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 edition of ‘Posthuman Convergences’ was held online. Nonetheless it was a great success! Like in previous years, the course attracted many students from all over the world. This year over 110 students attended, making it the biggest course of the Utrecht Summer School. The picture below is a mosaic of all the students, tutors, teachers and lecturers attending. Which is a digital interpretation of the group photograph of which making it has become a tradition over the years.

The book ‘Connectedness – An Incomplete Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene’ is almost there

The book Connectedness – An Incomplete Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene – Marianne Krogh (ed.), where Prof. Braidotti also wrote for, will be published on 15 September 2020. A short summary:

Surveying humanity’s impact on the planet, with contributions from Rosi Braidotti, Donna Haraway, Bill McKibben, Greta Thunberg, Bruno Latour, Alice Waters and others.

This timely book, in the form of an encyclopedia, considers the totality of issues surrounding the Anthropocene, that geologic era characterized by humanity’s vast impact on the Earth. Connectedness acknowledges the incomplete nature of its project seeing as how this riotous era is not yet finished. With contributions by Greta Thunberg, Bill McKibben, Alice Waters, Tomás Saraceno, Björk and many others, this publication consists of approximately 100 entries, arranged alphabetically, each reflecting on questions, phenomena, terms, possibilities and theories associated with the Anthropocene. Examples of entries include Air, Borders and Coexistence, as well as more complex subjects such as Donna Haraway on the Chthulucene or Anders Blok on Climate Risk Communities. The content ranges from scientific to cultural-theoretical and artistic contributions featuring a wide span of scholars, philosophers, anthropologists, scientists, authors, artists and others. The book accompanies the exhibition at the Danish Pavilion at the 2020 Venice Architectural Biennale.

Interested? Look at the short flip through:



At the opening of the Architecture Biennale in Venice in May 2021 there will be an event organized around this book. Interested to attend? Here you can find the flyer for the event.
