Posthumanism - FOAR702

This unit will introduce students to posthumanism, a critical discourse that seeks to question the exclusionary politics that has historically positioned human beings as the dominant life form. It will explore posthumanism’s multi-faceted relationship to mythological fable, cybernetics theory, disability studies, animal studies and ecocriticism, and provide an transdisciplinary perspective of how posthumanism demands a radical re-evaluation of human identity and society.

This unit will be accessible to all Arts MRes students, will provide a range of critical concepts and tools useful to scholars in an array of research pathways in Arts.
