Research at The Posthumanities Hub (2008-) rests on the assumption that the highly specialized analytical tools of the Humanities need to be recalibrated in order to meet up with ethical, ontological and epistemological challenges of our society. They need to be applied to a wider set of entangled natureculture phenomena and re-situate the human in relation to nature, environment, biology, animal, embodiment, technoscience and earth others. This does not imply neither a postfeminist, posthistorical nor a postbiological stance, but a vivid critical and creative framework for scholarship across the arts and sciences.
