The Posthuman & New Materialism, Utrecht Summer School

Thanks to all the people that did possible The Posthuman & New Materialism course, at Utrecht University. It was an intense summer school with a lot of readings and discussions . And, still, I have more questions and concerns about what it means to be a human in this new era or about the great array of possibilities and political challenges that we face as port-human. Furthermore, I feel deeply inspired by the course and, specially , by the passion and sharp thinking of Rosi Bradotti, her brave aptitude and political position.

Most of the lectures and Q-A session were recorded, if you are interested in one of them, please let me know I will be happy to share with you the files under request. Just drop me a line with the subject “Hi post human knowledge para nosotros”
