The Implications of the Post-human Turn for the Contemporary Humanities

This project builds and expands on my previous work in Continental philosophy and critical theory. It focusses on recent developments from the critique of Humanism on the basis of non- unitary identities or nomadic subjects, to the critique of anthropocentrism and anthropocentric exceptionalism. It aims at exploring the theoretical foundations of what I have defined as the posthuman turn (Braidotti, 2013). More specifically I will aim to assess the implications of the posthuman predicament in epistemological and ethical terms, for contemporary reflection on the academic structure and public value of the Humanities as a whole (Braidotti and Gilroy, 2016).
