Creating Posthumanities: Disrupting Humanities Methodologies
Part one of Disrupting the Humanities consists of a radical exploration of new posthumanist methodologies that take into account the agency of technologies and other non-human actants involved in modern forms of knowledge production.

Performing Posthumanities: Disrupting Humanities Aesthetics
Part two looks at the ways in which research is mediated and performed. It focuses on a reconsideration of the aesthetics of scholarship, including the “aesthetics of bookishness.” In doing so it investigates the potential of more post-digital, hybrid and multimodal forms of knowledge creation.
Circulating Posthumanities: Disrupting Humanities Institutions
Part three of Disrupting the Humanities provides a critical examination of how research is disseminated and shared, be it via publication to peers or to students in a pedagogical setting, adopting practices of radical openness and experimentation to challenge the normative and often print-based (neo)liberal humanist assumptions of how scholars in the humanities communicate.
