Staying with the Trouble: Haraway on Multispecies Cosmopolitics

Lecture starts around 9min:

“As the IHR’s 2013 Distinguished Lecturer, Donna Haraway, Distinguished Professor Emerita of the History of Consciousness Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz and author of Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: the Reinvention of Nature, calls upon her audience to work, play and think in terms of multispecies cosmopolitics, a new approach to recuperate the Terrapolis on which we live. After centuries of genocides, environmental destruction and its unevenly distributed suffering, and rampant killing of species, as well as individuals, Haraway suggests that humans turn to SF – string figures, science fiction, speculative fabulation, speculative feminism – as mechanisms for envisioning the future.”
