Of Animacy Reading Group: Posthuman Feminism

Of Animacy Reading Group: Posthuman Feminism

22 Nov 20177:00 pm | Studio | Free

The Of Animacy Reading Group will convene for their fourth meeting to discuss Rosi Braidotti’s vision of posthuman feminism.

Critical of the masculinist, racist and violent tradition of humanist thought, Braidotti’s four theses work to sever the historical bond between feminism and humanism. She advocates alliances across communities and with other-than-human forms of life, arguing for a posthuman feminism that recognises the material localities within which we are embodied and embedded.

  • Text: Rosi Braidotti, Four Theses on Posthuman Feminism in Anthropocene Feminism, ed. Richard Grusin (University of Minnesota Press, 2017)

Excerpts of the text will be read together during the session to support open discussion

This monthly reading group led by curator Nella Aarne thinks through feminist engagements with human and non-human agents in the material world. The reading group meets every month at the ICA Studio and is always open to all
