Karen Raber, Shakespeare and Posthumanist Theory (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018) @BloomsburyBooks @olemissenglish

New from Bloomsbury Publishing: Karen Raber, Professor of English, University of Mississippi, Shakespeare and Posthumanist Theory (2018) (The Arden Shakespeare). Here from the publisher's website is a description of the book's contents.
Shakespeare and Posthumanist Theory charts challenges in the field of Shakespeare studies to the assumption that the category “human” is real, stable, or worthy of privileging in discussions of the playwright's work. Drawing on a variety of methodologies - cognitive theory, systems theory, animal studies, ecostudies, the new materialisms - the volume investigates the world of Shakespeare's plays and poems in order to represent more thoroughly its variety, its ethics of inclusion, and its resistance to human triumphalism and exceptionalism.
