The Inhuman Gaze and Perceiving Otherwise conference

Prof. Rosi Braidotti will be giving a lecture at The Inhuman Gaze and Perceiving Otherwise conference, which takes place in Paris (Centre Culturel Irlandais, 5 Rue des Irlandais, 75005 Paris, France) during the 6th-9th of June 2018.

See the following website for more information: https://theinhumangaze.com/

The registrations for Prof. Rosi Braidotti'€™s 2018 summer school at Utrecht University are now open!

The 2018 summer school, titled “Posthuman Ethics, Pain and Endurance: How to Lead an Antifascist Life in Brutal Times,” which will take place between the 20th-24th of August 2018 at Utrecht University, in Utrecht, the Netherlands, combines an introduction to the basic tenets of Braidotti's brand of critical posthuman theory with an overview on contemporary debates about the ethical implications of posthumanism and the so-called ‘posthuman turn’.

While the emphasis of the course will be on the mutually enriching relationship between the posthuman, neo-materialism, and the ethics of affirmation, this year the main topic will be both the practical and theoretical issues around the notions of pain and endurance in the contemporary world.

How does a vision of the posthuman subject as a process of interaction between human, non-human and inhuman forces help us cope with the multi-facetted challenges of the contemporary world, caught between the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Sixth Extinction? How does the neo-Spinozist notion of endurance foster the project of constructing an affirmative ethics for posthuman subjects, at a time of social and political regression on so many fronts? How does this vital ethics of affirmation help us confront suffering, death and dying? What does it mean to lead an anti-fascist life in brutal times?
