New book celebrates the academic oeuvre of Rosi Braidotti

The Subject of Rosi Braidotti - Iris van der Tuin & Bolette Blaagaard

During the past three decades, Prof. Rosi Braidotti has been a dynamic presence on the global philosophical stage. To celebrate her work, Dr Iris van der Tuin (UU) and Dr Bolette Blaagaard (Aalburg University) have composed a collection of essays in which internationally renowned scholars engage with Rosi Braidotti's concepts: The Subject of Rosi Braidotti: Politics and Concepts.

"Braidotti reconfigures what and whom she touches; she is a practitioner of feminist transpositions, metamorphoses, and transductions. I know because she has transformed me again and again." - Donna Haraway

This edited volume brings into focus the diverse influence of Rosi Braidotti's work on academic fields such as feminist theory, political theory, continental philosophy, philosophy of science and technology, cultural studies, ethnicity and race studies. Inspired by Braidotti's philosophy of nomadic relations of embodied thought, the volume has become a cartography of productive engagements with the texts and concepts that she has developed throughout her immense body of work.

Several internationally renowned scholars, such as Judith Butler, Claire Colebrook, Genevieve Lloyd and Clare Hemmings have contributed to the book. And naturally there are also chapters by Prof. Berteke Waaldijk, Prof. Rosemarie Buikema and Dr Sandra Ponzanesi - as many academics from Utrecht University have close intellectual - and oftentimes personal - ties to Braidotti.
