Nomadic Subjects : Embodiment and Sexual Difference in Contemporary Feminist Theory (Gender and Culture) by Rosi  Braidotti.
Nomadic Subjects : Embodiment and Sexual Difference in Contemporary Feminist Theory (Gender and Culture) by Rosi  Braidotti.  

Braidotti argues for a new kind of philosophical thinking, one that would include the insights of feminism and abandon the hegemonic mode that is conventionally adopted in high theory.

Between Monsters, Goddesses and Cyborgs : Feminist Confrontations With Science, Medicine and Cyberspace by Nina Lykke (Editor), Rosi Braidotti (Editor)

Essays cover a wide range of topics, from the discourse of monstrosity and its place in cyborg genealogy, to an examination of the "postmodernification" of menopause and reproductive technologies, to an analysis of the use of gendered metaphors in physics. Also examines the practice of "virtual" (sic?) sexual harassment and violence online, and includes a comparative essay underscoring the relationship between cyberfeminism and ecofeminism. Lykke's Introduction provides a context for this anthology, situating it in relation to second wave (1970s) feminist analyses of gender and science, and women and technology. Braidotti's Postface restates the key concerns running through the volume, which can be generally described as interrogations of what counts as "nature," as natural and as normal in scientific and medical discourses and practices, especially when they explicitly (or inexplicitly) employ sexed/gendered ideologies. As the title suggests, this text is in conversation with Donna Haraway's "Manifesto for Cyborgs" (in Simians, Cyborgs and Women; The Reinvention of Nature, 1991). -- sidney eve matrix

Nomadic Philosopher: A Conversation with Rosi Braidotti

In this interview with Kathleen O'Grady, Rosi Braidotti discusses her recent work at the intersection of feminist and environmental activism, the central role of feminism in the redefinition of philosophy, the polemics between continental and Anglo-American feminist discourses, and the development of women studies programs in Western Europe and North America. 

 

Cyberfeminism with a difference

"In this article, I will first of all situate the question of cyber-bodies in the framework of postmodernity, stressing the paradoxes of embodiment. I will subsequently play a number of variations on the theme of cyber-feminism, highlighting the issue of sexual difference throughout." --Rosi Braidotti
