Donna Haraway | Making OddKin: Telling Stories for Earthly Survival

Multispecies environmental and reproductive justice must be practiced against human exceptionalism and in resistance to colonial capitalist divisions of species, landscapes, peoples, classes, genders, populations, races, natures, and societies. Easy to say; hard to do. Donna Haraway is Distinguished Professor Emerita in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California Santa Cruz. This is a Humanities Futures event. From Donna Haraway: Thanks to Susan Harding and Marco Harding for all the research, conversations, references and thinking about diverse Inuit worlds and people, especially about Sila, hunting, relational human&nonhuman personhood through living on the land, and the design of the Wear Qisi/Become Seal in the 8th slide. The image and the discussion were initiated by Susan and fleshed out with her, Paulette Metuq, Kevin O'Connor, and Marisol de la Cadena, partly on Facebook but growing out of Susan and Marco Harding's and Kevin O'Connor's participation in Bush School in Pangnirtung in summer 2015, resulting in the collaboration with Paulette Metuq. Also, the 1st slide is a design by Sandra Dieckmann, “Ouroborus of the Witches," used in the Women's Marches in January 2017.
