Abstract zum Vortrag:

This lecture will address the so-called ‚post-human‘ turn in contemporary feminist theory in the light of three main considerations: firstly the shifting perception and understanding of ‚the human‘ in the Life sciences. Secondly the effects of globalization as a system that functions by instilling process of ‚timeless time‘ and perverse, multiple time-lines. Thirdly, the impact of wars and conflicts in contemporary governmentality and the new forms of discrimination they engender on a planetary scale. Last but not least, the lecture examines the implications of this historical context for progressive, affirmative politics in general and gender issues in particular.
