Gender and Culture – part II on posthumanist and new materialist perspectives

Graduate School, Arts at Aarhus University


The course will go into detail with challenges and concerns in contemporary gender studies


The aim of the course is to foster advanced reflection on gender as a factor in cultural studies at multiple levels and to qualify the PhD-students through in-depth studies to integrate such reflection in their independent research


The course has singled out posthumanist and new materialist perspectives on gender and culture for discussion:

Please, reserve time prior to the course for reading:

1) Karen Barad: Meeting the Universe Halfway: Quantum Physics and the Entanglement of Matter and Meaning, Durham: Duke University Press 2007 and

2) Elizabeth Grosz: Becoming Undone: Darwinian Reflections on Life, Politics, and Art, Durham, Duke University Press 2011.

The course will also offer participants the opportunity to discuss their PhD-projects up against posthumanist and new materialist perspectives in gender studies.

Target group:

The course is relevant to PhD-students who have already completed the course “Gender and Culture – part I”, offered by the Graduate School Arts, Aarhus University (or who can document similar introductory courses on developments in the history of gender studies)


The course language will be Danish.
