Posthumanism and Higher Education

This book explores ways in which posthumanist and new materialist thinking can be put to work in order to reimagine higher education pedagogy, practice and research. The editors and contributors illuminate how we can move the thinking and doing of higher education out of the humanist cul-de-sac of individualism, binarism and colonialism and away from anthropocentric modes of performative rationality. Based in a reconceptualization of ontology, epistemology and ethics which shifts attention away from the human towards the vitality of matter and the nonhuman, posthumanist and new materialist approaches pose a profound challenge to higher education. In engaging with the theoretical twists and turns of various posthumanisms and new materialisms, this book offers new, experimental and creative ways for academics, practitioners and researchers to do higher education differently. This ground-breaking edited collection will appeal to students and scholars of posthumanism and new materialism, as well as those looking to conceptualize higher education as other than performative practice. Carol A. Taylor is Professor of Higher Education and Gender at the University of Bath, UK. Her research draws on feminist, new materialist and posthumanist approaches to generate experimental methodologies and transdisciplinary theories for exploring gender, space, power and participation in higher education. She co-edits the journal Gender and Education and is an Editorial Board member of Teaching in Higher Education and Critical Studies in Teaching and Learnin g .
Annouchka Bayley is Programme Lead in Creative Education at the Royal College of Art, UK.
