Braidotti, Rosi: Four Theses on Posthuman Feminism [en]

Braidotti, R. (2017). Four Theses on Posthuman Feminism. In R. Grusin (Ed.), Anthropocene Feminism. University of Minnesota Press.

This chapter adopts an affirmative stance and provides cartography of the intersections between feminism and the posthuman predicament by arguing the following theses: that feminism is not a humanism; that Anthropos has been decentered and so is the emphasis on bios; and that, as a result, nonhuman life, zoe, is now the ruling concept. Last, but not least, the chapter works out the implications of these shifts of perspective for feminist theory and practice, arguing that sexuality is a force beyond, beneath, and after gender. (Braidotti 2017: 21)
