"Posthuman(ist) Co-existence"

1. The Posthuman Summer Camp - 2nd edition
Based on the engaging experience of the first edition of the Posthuman Summer Camp (Italy, August 2023), the Italian Posthuman Network and the Centro Studi di Filosofia Postumanista are excited to announce the second edition of the Posthuman Summer Camp. This event is scheduled for 3 full days (August 10-11-12 2024); we will inaugurate on August 9 (at 7pm: Welcoming event ) and depart on August 13th (morning, after breakfast). The event will take place in Galliera, Italy, at Naturama, the zooanthropological hub of SIUA (Scuola di Interazione Uomo-Animale) - Full address: Via Cà Bianca 7A, Galliera (BO), Italy. 

2. What is it?
The Posthuman(ist) Summer Camp is an in-person, collaborative, and creative gathering of people researching posthumanism in different ways (academic and independent scholars, artists, scientists, performers, activists, seekers etc.) aimed at translating post-dualistic and post-anthropocentric theories into praxes, in experimental ways. We aim to collectively imagine and co-create broader trajectories for posthumanist education. This event is not conceived of as a traditional academic summer school. Rather than focusing on frontal activities, we aim to maximize interactive, practical, and outdoor workshops, exploring innovative forms of learning, knowledge production, and sharing. Co-living experiences (such as eating and cleaning together) will be part of the posthumanist exploration of our camp. 

3. This year’s theme
Further developing last year investigation of the topic ‘Posthuman Praxes’, we aim to continue the inquiry of practices of community building and education through the theme ‘Posthuman(ist) Co-existence’, here intended in a broad sense, including the ever-evolving challenges in human-human, as well as human-nonhuman and nonhuman-nonhuman relationships across different scales, evident in various global contexts and experiences. 

4. Participants
This call primarily targets people engaged in posthuman studies in its diverse forms (academic, independent, artistic) seeking a space to delve deeper into themes and strengthen connections in alternative ways, envisioning the construction of larger collaborative projects together.

Participants are required to have a satisfactory level of knowledge and understanding of the field of Posthumanism, in its variants. This Camp is conceived of as a space of generative experimentation of the theory in practice, based on a praxes of dignity and respect of all entities involved. 

Children are allowed at the summer camp. Those coming with children are responsible for organizing specific activities (in accordance with the organizing team) and for supervising them.

Nonhuman Animals are also allowed at Naturama. Those bringing animals are required to ensure their animal's well-being (especially considering the summer heat), and to supervise them.

Dal 10 al 13 agosto 2023 la Rete Postumana Italiana in collaborazione con il Centro Studi di Filosofia Postumanista ha organizzato un Posthuman Summer Camp, presso la cornice di Naturama, il polo zooantropologico del SIUA (Scuola Interazione Uomo Animale) a Galliera, BO.

L’iniziativa è stata pensata come il primo evento - di persona - organizzato dalla Rete: non si è trattato di una summer school (tradizionale) ma, piuttosto, di un incontro di carattere ibrido, laboratoriale, creativo per immaginare, pensare e ideare insieme una possibile summer school postumana per l’estate del 2024.

Stiamo preparando un racconto collettivo di questa esperienza. Stay tuned!

Nel frattempo è possibile visionare il programma dell'evento qui sotto.


Settimana Postumana: il primo (grande) evento della RPI (23-30 ottobre 2022)!

Abbiamo immaginato un grande evento, ibrido, pluralista e inclusivo composto da eventi di diversa tipologia: di taglio più accademico, più creativo, più divulgativo o più sperimentale. A organizzare gli eventi sono le tante persone che partecipano alle attività della Rete che ringraziamo per la generosità e Visione!

Tutti gli eventi sono stati gratuiti e accessibili a chiunque (nel formato online). Nella sezione sottostante, trovate la descrizione degli eventi ospitati all'interno del progetto con  i link per rivedere alcuni degli appuntamenti.

GRAZIE a tutt* coloro che hanno partecipato a questa iniziativa!
