The research group (consisting of PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers, alongside senior lecturers and professors) meets regularly on location for strategic workshops, networking and research exchange events.
Bridging human-animal studies, environmental humanities, creative and biological arts, critical biochemistry, queer and crip theory, cultural studies of science, medicine, and technology, the Posthumanities Hub fosters transgressive feminist collaborations that explore the performativity and vulnerability of variously situated ‘naturecultures’ (Haraway), and the entanglement of materiality and meaning with the analytical tools of the ‘posthumanities’ (Wolfe).
Ranging from engagements with Alzheimer’s Disease and human-animal lab relations, or new media and digital cultures, humanoid care robots and feminist digital activism, through to dealing with the Anthropocene, climate change, environmental writing, and teacher education, or trans/queer visual cultures and art/science feedback loops, the critical, creative, and pedagogical endeavours of our researchers engage with questions of what gets to count as human, inhuman, or nonhuman in the relations we live and die by.

Complimenting the research training in other areas as much as fostering a deeper posthumanities understanding of the research problem in the hand of the PhD Candidate, The Posthumanities Hub offers an open peer-to-peer community and transdisciplinary conversations between junior and senior scholars. PhD Candidates can ask to be affiliated with us, alongside their initial employment or position, if approved by their supervisor. Unfortunately we do not at the time have any PhD positions open.
