Posthumanism Reading Group
Critical posthumanism offers a new post-western epistemology and ontology, which makes us think radically different about the (material) world and our place as humans in it (see e.g. Barad, 2007, Braidotti, 2013). The reading group is a collegial and intellectual space for two funded NRF projects. One with Prof Vivienne Bozalek from UWC as Principal Investigator and the other with Prof Karin Murris as Principal Investigator (Decolonising Early Childhood Discourses: Critical Posthumanism in Higher Education). Postgraduate students and academics interested in our research topics are very welcome to join any time.
