Posthumanities situates itself at a crossroads: at the intersection of “the humanities” in its current academic configuration and the challenges it faces from “posthumanism” to move beyond its standard parameters and practices. Rather than simply reproducing established forms and methods of disciplinary knowledge, posthumanists confront how changes in society and culture require that scholars rethink what they do—theoretically, methodologically, and ethically. The “human” is enmeshed in the larger problem of what Jacques Derrida called “the living,” and traditional humanism is no longer adequate to understand the human’s entangled, complex relations with animals, the environment, and technology.
