Blogue ATS: Brief notes on the 2020 Rosi Braidotti’s Summer School: ‘Posthuman convergences’, postpresencial experience

No post de hoje do Blogue ATS, intitulado ‘Brief notes on the 2020 Rosi Braidotti’s Summer School: ‘Posthuman convergences’, postpresencial experience’, Lavínia Pereira partilha as suas reflexões teóricas sobre as obras da filósofa Rosi Braidotti, tal como acerca da sua experiência na Escola de Verão 2020 organizada por Braidotti na Universidade de Utrecht.
Lavínia Pereira é investigadora Pós-doutoral integrada no Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa (ICS-ULisboa), membro do Observatório de Ambiente, Território e Sociedade, doutorada em Filosofia Contemporânea pela Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa (FLUL).

The 2020 summer school entitled ‘Posthuman Convergences: Theories and Methodologies’, ‘explored the implications of the posthuman convergence of posthumanism and postanthropocentrism for the constitution of subjectivity, the production of knowledge and the practice of the academic humanities.’ Precisely at the moment when we can testify to the downfall of the humanist view of the human, and when the centrality of the Man (or the Anthropos) has been displaced by the confluence of advanced capitalism, technological development and the disruption of earth systems equilibrium, Braidotti faces without fear the most urgent task of rebuilding and rethinking the role of humanities in a context of, what she calls, ‘theory fatigue.”
