Summerschool on posthuman ethics in the anthropocone
From August 21 to August 25 the philosopher and feminist thinker Rosi Braidotti directs a summerschool at the University of Utrecht on the convergence of anti-humanism on the one hand, on anti-anthropocentrism on the other. From Posthuman Predicament tot Environmental Ethics, the Ethics of Art Practice in the Anthropocene and on Borders, Migration and Cultural Differences. The Summerschool ends on Friday August 25 reflecting on Posthuman Ethics between Vulnerability an Affirmation.
It goes without saying that the participants are expected to be familiar with Rosi Braidotti's book The Posthuman (Polity Press, 2013) and the article 'The Anthropocene: Are Human Now Overwhelming the Great Forces of Nature?' by Will Steffen, Paul J. Crutzen and John R. McNeill, 2002. Another source of inspiration is the book Manmade, edited by Tim Joye and Benoît Strubbe, 2016.
