Rosi Braidotti, ‘Are ‘WE’ in this together?’ video of UCL-IAS lecture

Rosi Braidotti, ‘Are ‘WE’ in this together?’ video of UCL-IAS lecture, 21 September 2017

This lecture explores the re-compositions of a vulnerable sense of pan-humanity (‘WE’) in the context of Anthropocenic climate change discussion (‘this’). It will focus on three main considerations: firstly the convergences around the posthuman turn and the shifting understandings of ‘the human’ in contemporary scholarship. Secondly the complex and internally contradictory effects of economic globalization as bio-political, information-driven system, that capitalizes on all that lives. Thirdly, the necro-political governmentality, that instils managed devastation and extinction, through wars and conflicts and the new forms of discrimination they engender on a planetary scale.
