Haraway at Harvard for two lectures
Prominent cultural theorist Donna J. Haraway will deliver the Robert and Maurine Rothschild Distinguished Lecture on Tuesday, April 23, at 4 p.m. in Lowell Lecture Hall. “From Cyborgs to Companion Species: Kinship in Technoscience” will examine how human/information machine relationships are alike and not alike their human/canine counterparts. The next day (Wednesday, April 24), Haraway, a professor in the history of consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz, will give the Radcliffe Institute Dean’s Lecture at 4 p.m. in Agassiz House Theatre, 10 Garden St. In her talk “Cloning Mutts, Saving Tigers: Ethical Emergents in Technocultural Dog Worlds,” Haraway will discuss how a dog cloning project and a project to save threatened tiger biodiversity inhabit common American discourses. Both lectures are free and open to the public.
