‘Critical Theory Beyond Negativity: the Ethics, Politics and Aesthetics of Affirmation’ – intensive course offered by Rosi Braidotti

Readers of this blog may be interested in an intensive course being organised and delivered by Rosi Braidotti, among others. The course description states: ‘The intensive course “Critical Theory Beyond Negativity: the Ethics, Politics and Aesthetics of Affirmation” explores critical theory in the Continental philosophy tradition, with special reference to the work of Gilles Deleuze, Luce Irigaray, Henri Bergson and Rosi Braidotti. The course offers an introduction to contemporary critical debates on the function of ‘the negative’ in the construction of subjects and of their epistemic and ethical values. Starting from an assumption that we are in the midst a ‘posthuman turn,’ it explores different aspects of posthuman subjectivity and stresses the productive potential of the posthuman condition, advocating for the politics of affirmation.’ Further details can be found here.
