Call for Applications: Summer School “Posthuman Knowledge(s)” (19-23 August 2019, Utrecht, NL)

This is a call for applications for the Summer School “Posthuman Knowledge(s)” by Prof. Rosi Braidotti taking place in Utrecht (Netherlands) form August 19 until August 23, 2019.

The intensive course “Posthuman Knowledge(s)” 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?

The deadline for applications is June 1st, 2019. More information can be found here.
