About the Speaker
Braidotti received her B.A. from Australian National University in 1978, and her Ph.D. from the Université de Paris, Panthéon-Sorbonne in 1981. In 2005 she became a Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion, and in 2009 an Honorary Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities; currently she is Distinguished University Professor and founding Director of the Centre for the Humanities at Utrecht University. A world figure in gender and critical theory, she set up in 1989 the Network of Interdisciplinary Women’s Studies in Europe (NOI&SE) within the Erasmus Programme. Her many books, published throughout Europe, include Nomadic Subjects. Embodiment and Sexual difference in Contemporary Feminist Theory (Columbia, 1994), Metamorphoses: Towards a Materialist Theory of Becoming (Polity, 2002), and, most recently, The Posthuman (Polity, 2013).
