INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP: POST-ANTHROPOCENTRISM AND THE GLOBAL CRISIS OF SOVEREIGNTY THAT CHALLENGES THE CULTURES OF THE ANTHROPOCENE (A TRANS-ANDEAN INQUIRY)

March 26, 2019 (All day)

The Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures is pleased to announce an International Workshop on Post-Anthropocentrism tailored to advance ways of understanding the relationship between post-anthropocentric reflections and the metaphor of the Anthropocene within the context of Trans-Andean cultural traditions, in which all forms of life, including non-human entities are perceived as “subject of rights” and enjoy a cognitive status. If postcolonial studies have transformed critical thinking in the humanities and social sciences, post-anthropocentric reflections deepen and problematize the gesture and remap the field of cultural theory at large.
