Vít Bohal

Vít Bohal is currently a PhD candidate at the Center for Critical and Cultural Theory at Charles University Prague. His dissertation focuses on Xenofeminism, interpreting it as a materialist and structuralist political project. He is working towards formulating a ‘critical xenology’ which analyzes the conception of xeno within an infrastructural analysis of otherness. His work focuses mainly on contemporary feminist theory, accelerationism, speculative realism, post-digitality and philosophy of technology. He is member of the Prague-based Diffractions Collective and has participated on various curatorial and discursive projects both in Prague and abroad. He has edited a number of essay collections and in 2019  was selected as a visiting researcher at the University of Siena’s Department of Education, Humanities and Intercultural Communication.
