Nomadic Feminist Theory in a Global Era
Donnerstag, 24. November 2011
Hauptgebäude der Universität Zürich, Rämistrasse 71, Raum KOL G 209
Prof. Braidotti will discuss the so-called ‹post-human› turn in contemporary feminist theory in the light of three main considerations: firstly the shifting perception and understanding of ‹the human› in the Life sciences. Secondly the effects of globalization as a system that functions by instilling processes of ‹timeless time› and perverse, multiple time-lines. Thirdly, the impact of wars and conflicts in contemporary governmentality and the new forms of discrimination they engender on a planetary scale.
Rosi Braidotti is Distinguished Professor in the Humanities of Utrecht University and founding Director of the Centre for the Humanities at Utrecht since 2007. Rosi Braidotti’s research and writing largely engages feminist philosophy and cultural studies/studies of popular culture. She is especially interested in poststructuralism and psychoanalysis, theories of sexual difference and the history of feminist ideas.
