Posthumous Life: Theorizing Beyond the Posthuman
Linköping University, Department of Thematic Studies, The Department of Gender Studies. Linköping University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences. (Critical Life Studies Research Team)
Pennsylvania State University.
2017 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Posthumous Life launches critical life studies: a mode of inquiry that neither endorses nor dismisses a wave of recent "turns" toward life, matter, vitality, inhumanity, animality, and the real. Questioning the nature and limits of life in the natural sciences, the essays in this volume examine the boundaries and significance of the human and the humanities in the wake of various redefinitions of what counts as life. They explore the possibility of theorizing life without assuming it to be either a simple substrate or an always-mediated effect of culture and difference. Posthumous Lifeprovides new ways of thinking about animals, plants, humans, difference, sexuality, race, gender, identity, the earth, and the future.
