Manifestly Haraway

The Center for Emerging Worlds and the Center for Cultural Studies together with the Science and Justice Research Center will host a conversation with Donna Haraway and Cary Wolfe on the recently released Manifestly Haraway (University of Minnesota Press).

A reception will follow.

Manifestly Haraway brings together Donna Haraway’s seminal “Cyborg Manifesto” and “Companion Species Manifesto.” Manifestly Haraway also includes a wide-ranging conversation between Haraway and Cary Wolfe on the history and meaning of the manifestos in the context of biopolitics, feminism, Marxism, human-nonhuman relationships, making kin, literary tropes, material semiotics, the negative way of knowing, secular Catholicism, and more.

Cary Wolfe is Bruce and Elizabeth Dunlevie Professor of English at Rice University, where he is also founding director of 3CT (Center for Critical and Cultural Theory). He is the author of Zoontologies: The Question of the Animal, The Other Emerson (with Branka Arsic), and What Is Posthumanism?
