A special seminar led by Rosi Braidotti (Utrecht University)
In collaboration with the Department of Italian, Centre for Gender Studies and CRASSH
Prof. Rosi Braidotti is Distinguished Professor in the Humanities at Utrecht University and one of the leading contemporary feminist theorist. She was Director of the Netherlands Research School of Women's Studies. She also taught in Melbourne, Florence, Princeton, Buenos Aires, London. She was recently knighted by H.R.M. the Queen of the Netherlands.
Born in Italy, raised in Australia, educated in Paris and currently living and teaching in the Netherlands, Rosi Braidotti has created from her nomadic existence a politically motivated philosophy that provides a new framework for reinventing the female subject in our post-metaphysical world. Labelled a postmodern feminist, Braidotti aims to develop a theory that can support a heterogenous model of subjectivity for the contemporary woman. Her books include the highly praised Patterns of Dissonance (1991), Women, the Environment and Sustainable Development (1994), Nomadic Subjects (1995), Metamorphoses. Towards a Materialistic Theory of Becoming (2003).Transposition. On nomadic ethics is forthcoming for Polity Press in 2006. http://www.let.uu.nl/~Rosi.Braidotti/persona
