The 'posthumanities', however, seems to me a useful notion for tracking scholarly conversations

'Human' is definitely not a neutral or innocent category, but a highly gendered and racialized one

By ’posthumanist’ I mean to signal the crucial recognition that nonhumans play an important role in naturalcultural practices, including everyday social practices, scientific practices, and practices that do not include humans. But also, beyond this, my use of posthumanism marks a refusal to take the distinction between ’human’ and ’nonhuman’ for granted, and to found analysis on this presumably fixed and inherent set of categories. Any such hardwiring precludes a geneological investigation into the practices through which humans and nonhumans are delineated and differently constituted. A posthumanist performative account worth its salt must also avoid cementing the nature-culture dichotomy into its foundations, thereby enabling a geneaological analysis of how these crucial distinctions are materially and discursively produced.
