Human-Inhuman-Posthuman Summer School

Cover of Rosi Braidotti’s publication Il postumano, 2014

This is an intensive summer course convened and taught by Prof. Rosi Braidotti and Maria Hlavajova.

The course Human/Inhuman/Posthuman offers an introduction to contemporary debates around posthumanism and the so-called “posthuman turn,” as well as Rosi Braidotti’s brand of critical posthuman theory. The course will explore the extent to which a posthuman approach displaces the traditional humanistic unity of the subject, as well as the binary human/non-human distinction on which such unity is postulated. Starting from the assumption that we find ourselves in a “posthuman predicament,” the course explores different aspects of posthuman subjectivity and culture, stressing the productive potential of the posthuman condition and advocating for the politics of affirmation.
