Welcome to the Posthumanities Network: The Next Genderation!
Our Posthumanities Network: The Next Genderation (funded by the Swedish Research Council - Vetenskapsrådet) is a constellation of inter-, trans- and cross-disciplinary researchers engaged in exploring how notions of the “human” is entangled with hierarchical binaries such as Self and Other, Man and Woman, Culture and Nature. At the core of our diverse research is an appreciation of the Others of hu/Man, for instance enlivened nature and biology, science and embodiment; women, natives, queers and disabled; animals, machines, materialities and the environment.
The Posthumanities Network is established across Europe and the Americas through several core group nodes:
- Uppsala University, Sweden: The HumAnimal Studies Group of GenNa (with key researchers Dr. Måns Andersson, Dr. Tora Holmberg, coordinator of GenNa, and Dr. Malin Ah-King)
- Utrecth University, The Netherlands: Centre for Humanities, and its Director, Distinguished Prof. Rosi Braidotti as well as Gender Studies, Dr. Iris van der Tuin and her project The Material Turn in the Humanities.
- Queen’s University, Canada: The NONHuman Research Group (headed by Prof. Myra J. Hird, Sociology, Obstetrics and Gynecology).
- Wesleyan University, Connecticut, USA: (The posthumanities node with Prof. Lori Gruen and Prof. Kari Weil)
- University of Stavanger, Norway (The Network for Gender Research with Dr. Wencke Mühleisen and PhD-student Ingvil Hellstrand, also affiliated to The Posthumanities Hub)
- Linköping University, Sweden: The Zoontology Research Team, headed by Dr. Jami Weinstein.
The Posthumanities Network is initiated by Dr. Cecilia Åsberg at Tema Genus, who also coordinates the research platform The Posthumanities Hub. This "hub" functions as a centre of activity, a meeting of research interests, and a focal point for events and activities within The Posthumanities Network.
Our Posthumanities Network: The Next Genderation is a way to exchange research ideas, organise collective seminars and publication projects.
There is also a newsletter to help keep you informed of research and activities throughout the Posthumanities Network. We welcome information, ideas and initiatives from all networkers! Click here to read our newsletter!
