Thinking With Animals (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Chiara Stefanoni

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 16:15 - 17:45 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | C 16.109/110 | C 16.109/110

Inhalt: In recent decades, the Humanities and the Social Sciences have witnessed an incremental expansion of the interest in the so-called “question of the animal” and the investigation of human-animal relations. This has led to a real “animal turn”, which has given rise to a new research paradigm with its precise set of methodologies and theories, i. e. the interdisciplinary field of Human-Animal Studies. The very emergence of the “animal turn” is a phenomenon to which philosophy has undoubtedly strongly contributed: addressed to the constant investigation of what is the “Man”, a part of the philosophical research has gradually met the “Animal” and animals in the flesh, allowing this encounter to put into question many assumptions of its own tradition. The seminar aims to provide an introduction to the flourishing and articulated contemporary philosophical debate on these issues. Through a series of selected readings, the students will be familiarized with the fundamental concepts, theoretical junctures and terminology of the debate. The main traditions of thought at play will be presented, critically analyzing and evaluating the tools and argumentative style that distinguish them: from Peter Singer's utilitarianism to feminist perspectives, from the critique of continental humanism to the reflections of the Frankfurt School.

Rethinking Nature and Anthropos Today (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Chiara Stefanoni

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | C 5.325 | C 5.325

Inhalt: What is Nature? What is the Human? Is the dualism of Nature/Human, with which the West has shaped the world, still valid and operating today, in the face of the current socio-ecological crisis? How can we make sense of the current era of extreme environmental changes that has been labeled "the Anthropocene"? The course tries to articulate an operation of de/construction to radically rethink the concept of Nature and Anthropos. In doing so, we will trace an interdisciplinary route, taking into consideration contribution to the debate coming from sociology, anthropology, ecofeminism, postcolonial studies and critical animal studies.

Issues in Feminist Philosophies (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Chiara Stefanoni

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 12:15 - 13:45 | 26.10.2022 - 25.01.2023 | C 5.325

Inhalt: How can we understand the relationship between feminism and philosophy? Is it a relation of antagonism, interiority, or exteriority? Starting from ancient philosophy, we will investigate how feminist perspectives put into question the philosophical tradition, its biases and its features. Following a chronological as well as a thematic path, we will discuss key texts in feminist thinking and, at the same time, we will see how they critique and rethink main philosophical issues: metaphysics, subjectivity, and epistemology. In doing so, we will take into consideration a plurality of feminist approaches, concepts and debates: from the first wave feminism and its struggle for equality to the Italian feminism of the second wave, from the queer turn and its radical discussion of sexuality and identities, to the tradition of Marxist feminism and the problem of "domestic labor", from black feminism and intersectionality to ecofeminism and feminist animal studies.
