Posthuman Citizens, Humanized Animals, Viral Politics

23 May 2013
The Open University in London, 1-11 Hawley Crescent, Camden Town, London NW1 8NP

Public lecture by Professor Rosi Braidotti

The lecture aims at outlining at least two different forms of contemporary posthuman subjectivity. The first is an analytic mode of posthuman thought which acknowledges the decline of classical, unitary visions of subjectivity, due to a number of factors including scientific and technological advances, but does not embrace it at the normative level. The second is a more critical posthuman thought, which on the contrary embraces the new range of normative options and alternative values engendered by the posthuman predicament. The former results in a compensatory extension of ‘human’ rights to non-anthropocentric species and actors, in keeping with the humanistic tradition. The latter argues instead for a generic ‘becoming-nomadic’, which involves transversal assemblages across species and actors and requires the creation of new ethical frames, relations and practices. The paper ends by exploring the implication of these schemes for new insights into political subjectivity and offers examples of  affirmative posthuman ‘viral politics’.
