Rosi Braidotti: Posthuman Feminism

“Feminism is the desire for freedom, a deep, visceral longing for overcoming conditions that are not bearable, unfair, not sustainable”

On International Women’s Day hear from renowned philosopher and feminist theorist Professor Rosi Braidotti on the topic of Posthuman Feminism, which offers a new perspective on feminist theory. This inspiring call to action argues for the need to move beyond traditional human-centered approaches and embrace the complexities and possibilities of the posthuman condition, in order to achieve meaningful social change. 

Presented in partnership with the Design and Creative Practice Enabling Impact Platform. 

This event is supported by the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund, a Victorian Government and City of Melbourne partnership.
