Cursusdoelen
- Knowledge of current research, key concepts, and debates in the field(s) of posthumanism;  
- Ability to apply theoretical insights critically to particular cases and to formulate questions for research. 
Inhoud
The posthumanist turn in the Humanities encompasses a variety of fields and approaches, all of which are concerned with decentering the human as the default unmarked subject position within the Humanities. This has profound implications for the study of literature and other forms of artistic expression. What are the challenges and opportunities that posthumanist theories present for the study of literature, aesthetics, and poetics? Who is the subject and who or what is the object of knowledge and representation? The precise focus will vary from year to year, but will include one or more of the following: biopolitics, disability studies, eco-criticism, animal studies.
