This article reflects upon the theoretical shift of humanities in the last few years. This is looked at in relation to what has been called the Anthropocene, along with the subsequent environmental turn in these disciplines, which cannot be explained without considering the decisive role played by technology in contemporary ways of life. Some of the main debates brought by feminist theoreticians Donna Haraway and Rosi Braidotti are examined, as they participate in the current critical setting which is devoted to analyse the political issues underlying the phenomena we witness and from which we participate. Those phenomena are viewed as articulations between the human and the non human, the biological, the technical, and social.
Keywords: Humanities, Anthropocene, environmental turn, Donna Haraway, Rosi Braidotti, critical theories.
