ABOUT THE LECTURE: This lecture explores the concept of companion species as a response to the critiques of humanism and the urgency of ethical and political questions about multi-species relations. Much more than "companion animals," companion species embraces the human and non-human partners who make worlds in their interactions. Pairing biologists with philosophers and media artists, Haraway explores figurations and stories that link people with other species that are both organic and technological. When Species Meet explores contact zones in colonial studies, developmental biology, anthropology, animal studies, science fiction and ecology. Donna Haraway is Professor and former chair of the History of Consciousness Department at UC Santa Cruz and Professor of Feminist Theory and Technoscience at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. Her research interests include: Cultural and historical studies of science and technology, relation of life and human sciences, connections between humans and nonhumans, and feminist theory.
