Abstract

This article looks back at some of the genealogies of posthumanism, offering what is hopefully an accessible way into understanding this complex area of thought for the growing numbers of scholars wishing to apply it to educational concerns. In doing so, it structures the existing, substantial literature on posthumanism into three broad categories – critical posthumanism, technological posthumanism and ecological posthumanism – briefly indicating how each of these might hold different kinds of explanatory power for educational practice and research.
