Engaging Donna Haraway Author : Cynthia Huff Publisher : Taylor & Francis Total Pages : 230 Release : 2022-08-18 ISBN 10 : 9781000637816 ISBN 13 : 1000637816 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Engaging Donna Haraway Book Description: Engaging Donna Haraway: Lives in the Natureculture Web explores the impact of major theorist, Donna Haraway, in such diverse areas as feminisms, Marxism, new materialism, science studies, posthumanism, animal studies, ecocriticism, digital media, and life narrative. The book shows how Haraway’s decades-long career as a major theoretical voice and provocateur of thinking about new and complex connections across technology, species, and disciplines has generated bold experiments in writing from the perspective and senses of non-human species, in photographic self-portraiture of bodily life, in animating the lives of scientists, in radical genealogy, in playful teaching methods and much more. Focusing on the ways in which Haraway’s oeuvre have affected and will continue to challenge life narrative theory and practice, the chapters in this book present cross-disciplinary perspectives which are both personal and critical. As scholars, students and activists inspired by Haraway’s work, these essays together ask all of us to think about where we place ourselves in an age of environmental crisis and how to live in a ‘natureculture web’ which is as fragile as it is beautiful. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of a/b: Auto/Biography Studies.
