Vol 47 No 2 (2020): Posthumanism and Ethnology

This thematic issue of Ethnologia Fennica discusses the intersections of ethnology and posthumanist theories and approaches. The central idea of posthumanist theoretization is to displace the human being from the central position in the universe and highlight that more-than-human entities have strongly affected the formation of humanity. Posthumanist thought rejects the classic humanist divisions of self and other, mind and body, society and nature, human and animal, organic and technological, and it encourages to think relationally and direct research interests to the non-human realm.
