Newsletter of The Posthumanities Network: The Next Genderation!
We would like to invite you to receive a quarterly newsletter from The Posthumanities Network: The Next Genderation (funded by the Swedish Research Council - Vetenskapsrådet). The Posthumanities Network emanates from the interdisciplinary research platform The Posthumanities Hub directed by Dr. Cecilia Åsberg at Linköping University, Sweden. The Posthumanities Hub is a centre of activity, a meeting of research interests, for inventive scholarly research, feminist networking & creative postgraduate training within a critical framework of posthumanities.
The Posthumanities Network is a network for exchanging research ideas, organise collective events and publication projects. The Hub serves as a focal point for events and activities initiated by the team on location, but this newsletter would like to extend this location to include you! Therefore, we would love to hear from you about events you are organising; seminars, conferences, exhibitions, reading groups, talks, courses etc. We’d also like to help you share your ideas for collaborative projects or research activities.
The newsletter is a space to share and exchange research ideas and organise collaborative events! We hope you will accept our invitation to expand our initiative. If you do not wish to receive the newsletter, please contact Ingvil Hellstrand. Ingvil can also be contacted for further information about subscriptions or about up-dates to our newsletter. For further information about the Posthumanities Network, contact Cecilia Åsberg. We apologise for cross-posting. Please forward to friends and colleagues that might be interested.
We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
