International Networks

As a “hub of hubs”, The Posthumanities Hub is both host to and part of several lively international networks for postdisciplinary sciences and more-than-human humanities, such as:

Next Genderation Sustainability: International network of scholars from the KTH – The Posthumanities Hub Doctoral Course “Gender & Sustainability: Introducing Feminist Environmental Humanities” coordinated by Meike Schalk (KTH, Architechture and Art, Design and Technology Konstfack/KTH) and Cecilia Åsberg (KTH/LiU), Marietta Radomska (LiU) and Janna Holmstedt (KTH/SHM), with a larger teacher team.

Network of European Humanities.21 Out of the UNESCO World Humanities Report: Europe grew this network associated to CIPSH. Headquartered in the Institute for Intercultural German Studies, Faculty of the Humanities, the University of Göttingen, Germany. NEH21.net wants to develop European perspectives on the Humanities in full respect of the rich diversity of languages, identities and traditions of this region. It aims to support the project of the European Universities of the EU Commission and to develop suitable educational and research projects. It focusses on the development of critical and creative perspectives on European social cultural values such as: human rights, solidarity and critical democratic participation, tolerance, equality and non-discrimination and to study the extent to which they play out in the public life of multiple communities in Europe today. NEH21.net also supports the following principles in Humanities research: integrity, academic freedom, trustworthiness, responsibility, diversity and openness.

STATE OF THE ART NETWORK (SOTAN) Nordic-Baltic transdisciplinary network of artists, practitioners, researchers, and organizations who have come together to discuss the role, responsibility, and potential of art and culture in the Anthropocene. The network is a collaboration by The Bioart Society, The Independent AIR and The Posthumanities Hub and it is  funded by  Nordisk Kulturfond, Nordisk kulturkontakt, A.P. Møller Fund and Koneen Säätiö – Kone Foundation.

The Posthumanities Network: The Next Genderation – (funded by the Swedish Research Council – Vetenskapsrådet; established by Prof. Cecilia Åsberg, LiU) – a constellation of inter-, trans- and cross-disciplinary researchers engaged in exploring how notions of the “human” is entangled with hierarchical binaries such as Self and Other, Man and Woman, Culture and Nature. At the core of our diverse research is an appreciation of the Others of hu/Man, for instance enlivened nature and biology, science and embodiment; women, natives, queers and disabled; animals, machines, materialities and the environment. The Posthumanities Network is established across Europe and the Americas through several core group nodes (Linköping University, Sweden; Uppsala University, Sweden; Utrecht University, the Netherlands; Queen’s University, Canada; Wesleyan University, USA; Stavanger University, Norway).

Posthumanities International Network (PIN) – collaboration between Linköping University (Prof. Cecilia Åsberg), Utrecht University (Prof. Rosi Braidotti), Goldsmiths University of London (Prof. Matthew Fuller) and Warwick University (Dr. Olga Goriunova).
