In this lecture, building on the recent publication of The Edinburgh Companion to the New European Humanities, Italian philosopher Rosi Braidotti maps out the impact of so-called "post-" human thought in European academic institutions. How does this sweeping phenomenon interface with recent developments in capitalism and nationalism in the continent? To what extent is it a pretext for dismantling critical theory?

ROSI BRAIDOTTI is a feminist Continental philosopher and Distinguished University Professor Emerita at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

Her most recent publications include: Posthuman Feminism (2022) and More Posthuman Glossary (2022).
