Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene
Joint Visiting Artists and Scholars and Graduate Lecture Series Event
Introduction by Nicole Archer
In the midst of spiraling ecological devastation, multispecies feminist theorist Donna J. Haraway’s latest book, Staying with the Trouble, offers provocative new ways to reconfigure our relations to the earth and its inhabitants. Haraway will discuss why learning to stay with the trouble of living and dying together on a damaged earth might provide a means to build more livable futures. Haraway is Distinguished Professor Emerita in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
