Cecilia Åsberg Website

Cecilia Åsberg is Professor at Linköping University, Sweden. At Tema Genus, the unit for Gender Studies at the large cross-disciplinary Department of Thematic Studies (TEMA), she works as professor, teacher, PhD supervisor, community-builder and research leader – for instance of the Seed Box: A Mistra-Formas Environmental Humanities Collaboratory, the largest post-conventional eco-humanities initiative in Sweden. She directs since its inauguration the research group The Posthumanities Hub(2008-), and co-directs the three-university centre for gender excellence, GEXcel International Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies.

Her postdisciplinary research in gender studies (on genetics and popular science, nature, embodiment and human-animal relations, history in the present, international adoption and identity formation, pharmaceutical imagery, laboratory life and Alzheimer’s Disease, posthuman environmental ethics and the many ways in which we are differentiated, in and of nature and the environment) translates into feminist forms of posthumanities that enliven, question and flesh out the human of the humanities.
