“Messing with Haraway”: A Celebration in Honor of Professor Donna Haraway

Share

January 28, 2011 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

  |  College 9/10 Multi-Purpose Room


Donna Haraway, Distinguished Professor Emerita in the History of Consciousness Department at UC Santa Cruz, has shaped an entire generation of scholars and scholarship. Her wit, brilliance, generosity, dedication to her students has had and will continue to have immeasurable consequences. A community of scholars attuned to feminist science studies and multi-species flourishing is but one part of her unparalleled legacy.

This one day celebration is an opportunity for the UCSC community to express the effect Donna  Haraway has had on the way we research, teach, learn with, think with, live with, eat with a variety of multispecies companions.  Our event, “Messing with Haraway,” is about eating together, as messmates and intellectual companions, while engaging playfully with Haraway’s scholarship and continuing the game of cat’s cradle that she helped us learn how to play.  The UCSC Science Studies Cluster invites you to join us for a day multi-media art, live performances, virtual presences, and a tasty meal, which is sure to be a feast for the thoughtful body, hungry mind, and feminist soul.

Admission is free and open to everyone.  But because of limited space, you must RSVP to receive a ticket to this event. Please RSVP to MessingWithHaraway@gmail.com before January 15th, 2010 to ensure your place around our table.
