Leading feminist theorist Rosi Braidotti visits Warwick to talk about The Posthuman

posthuman.pngRosi Braidotti, Distinguished University Professor and Director of the Centre for the Humanities at Utrecht University and one of the most influential feminist theorists today, will be at Warwick on Thursday 9 May for a pre-launch presentation of her latest book, 'The Posthuman' (Polity, 2013).

'The Posthuman' explores the ways in which new digital, biological and reproductive technologies, robotics and advanced prosthetics blur the traditional distinction between the human and its others. Braidotti considers the implications of these shifts for the institutional practice of the humanities and outlines new forms of cosmopolitan neo-humanism that emerge from the spectrum of post-colonial and race studies, as well as gender analysis and environmentalism.

All are welcome at the wine reception, organised jointly by the Centre for Research in Philosophy, Literature and the Arts and the Warwick Workshop for Interdisciplinary German Studies.

Come along on Thursday 9 May, 5pm - 6pm, in the University Bookshop (Warwick Arts Centre)

'The Posthuman' (Polity Press, 2013) will be officially launched in London on 23 May 2013.
