Human, Inhuman, Posthuman: Implications for the Academic Humanities Lecture by Rosi Braidotti

The field of posthuman scholarship is in full growth and expansion and different strands of thought are taking shape, for instance about neo-materialism, posthumanism, and Anthropocene studies. A lot of consensus seems to be emerging that the posthuman is a useful analytical tool, but when it comes to the normative dimension, it is preferable to revert to humanistic values.

How can a critical posthuman approach lead to a more consistent vision of posthuman ethics, based on the convergence of posthumanism and post-anthropocentrism? What is posthuman normativity?
