Professor ved Utrecht University:

Rosi Braidotti

WHAT IS THE HUMAN IN the HUMANITIES TODAY?

 

Rosi Braidotti’s lecture explores the multiplication of meanings and understandings of the human in contemporary academic and public discussions. Braidotti will situate these debates within the posthuman turn in the contemporary critical Humanities, which she defines as the convergence between post-humanism and post-anthropocentrism. The former critiques the universalist ideal of Man as the measure of all things, while the latter critiques species hierarchy.
Braidotti’s argument is both critical and affirmative and it addresses posthuman scholarship not as a symptom of crisis, but rather as a vital regeneration of the field. What are the parameters that define posthuman subjects of knowledge? To what an extent do new contemporary developments, such as for instance Environmental and the Digital Humanities introduce new visions of the human?  What is posthuman ethical accountability in scholarship today?
