Recently, on October 23 and 27 2017, Science & Justice Research Center colleague and UC Santa Cruz Professor Emerita (History of Consciousness) Donna Haraway gave two lectures, one at Yale University and one at Duke University. Both lectures were titled “Making Oddkin: Telling Stories for Earthly Survival” and explored the possibilities of the intersection of science, art, and activism, as well as the responsibilities of living in the Cthulhucene, including the decolonization of contact zones. Yale University, from which Haraway received her PhD in biology, also awarded her the Wilbur L. Cross medal for Distinguished Graduate School Alumni, one of Yale’s highest honors. You can now see both lectures on YouTube (follow these links to watch October 23 talk at Yale University and the October 26 talk at Duke University). You can read about her honor and the events surrounding her trip to Yale’s Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) department here.
