IIT Kharagpur new lessons on humanities

New Lessons in Critical Humanities- Grounding Posthuman & Experimental Feminisms in Nationalistic India at IIT Kharagpur [Dec 14-20]: Register by Dec 1

About the Course

Feminism as an academic discipline has always pushed Theory to its limits, and in doing so has also created new percepts and themes to further its edifice. After the Fifth Wave and MeToo, it is the search for feminist agency within the contours of Posthumanism, and a critique of neoliberal corporate feminism by radical feminist activists that fuel the engine of academic feminism.

This course offers an introduction to a possible redefinition of feminism in our ‘nationalistic’ times, and a schizoanalytic, psychoanalytic and dialectical examination of feminisms in India and around the globe.
