Posthumanism(s)
COL 215
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 214, AMST 215

This course explores how the interdisciplinary scholarship of posthumanism calls the classical philosophical tradition of humanism into question, beginning with the premise that the very idea of being human has always depended on our shifting notions of the ecological, the nonhuman, the subhuman, and the inhuman. Authors will include Donna Haraway, Robert Pepperell, Katherine Hayles, Jacques Derrida, Cary Wolfe, Zakiyyah Iman Jackson, and Fred Moten, among others.
