Posthuman Convergences Theories and Methodologies

Utrecht Summer School Course by Prof. Rosi Braidotti

August 17-21, 2020

Utrecht University confirms that the Summer School courses will proceed as planned. We will keep you all posted on new developments. In the meantime we are also assessing the option of offering the intensive course online as a back-up plan. The Utrecht Summer School is still in business!

Aims The 2020 intensive course will focus on “Posthuman Convergences”.  The aim of this interdisciplinary course is to track the convergences between different branches of posthuman knowledge production. It starts by offering a selected overview of contemporary scholarship on the ‘posthuman turn’ notable its applications and implications in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The posthuman turn is defined as the convergence, within the context of advanced or cognitive capitalism, of post-humanism on the one hand and post-anthropocentrism on the other. Although these lines of critical thought often overlap, they are distinct phenomena both in terms of their theoretical genealogies and their practical applications. Their current convergence is triggering a number of qualitative developments of a very original nature, which we will outline and study. A related aim of the course is to introduce and apply Braidotti’s specific brand of neo-materialist, critical feminist posthuman theory.
