Critical Theory After Postmodernism: Affect, New Materialisms, and the Nonhuman

This seminar will examine the recent turn to affect theory, new materialisms, and the nonhuman in the humanities and anthropology. In particular, we will discuss how critical theory has moved away from anthropocentric and discourse-centered understandings of the world in order to engage, rather, the affective, pre-discursive dimensions of social life as well as the materialities and nonhuman agencies that are inseparable from human experience.
