Christine Daigle is professor of philosophy and Director of the Posthumanism Research Institute at Brock University. Her current research explores the concept of posthuman vulnerability and its ethical potential from a posthumanist material feminist point of view. She also works on environmental posthumanities and issues related to the Anthropocene.
I discuss the concept of transjectivity which captures the notions of transsubjective and transobjective (or material) entanglements in relation to the impact COVID-19 has had on our individual and collective ways of being. The sudden disruptive shifts to the ways in which we experience our multiple entanglements has caused disorientation. It only uncovers a fundamental fact: as transjective beings, we are fundamentally vulnerable.
