Reading Group: Becoming Posthuman led by Professor Ute Meta Bauer

17 Sep 2019, Tue - 29 Oct 2019, Tue 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM
The Exhibition Hall, Block 43 Malan Road

During these reading sessions, participants will look at and discuss texts from books such as Rosi Braidotti and Simone Bignall’s Posthuman Ecologies: Complexity and Process after Deleuze, Donna Haraway’s Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene and Anna Tsing’s The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins. The group will explore the possibility of a critical humanity, ranging from co-habitation with other forms of life to more dystopic scenarios. This links to the Centre’s overarching research topic Climates. Habitats. Environments., which examines, among others, the precarious conditions of human habitats due to climatic shifts, and their impact on geo-political, social, and cultural systems.
