Donna Haraway: live theory
Donna Haraway: Live Theory is an invaluable introduction to the work of this key contemporary theorist and critic. Concise, accessible and comprehensive, it locates Haraway in the context of post-Vietnam US academic life, drawing out the roots of her political and intellectual concerns. The book makes clear the extent of her impact on the understanding of the relationship between 'nature' and 'culture', and how this helped shape the discipline of cultural studies. In particular, the book explores and illuminates Haraway's important and ongoing contributions to 'feminist science studies', including the groundbreaking essays on the cyborg and situated knowledges. Haraway's identification of science and technology as being closely entwined with global capitalism is discussed in detail, as are her sense of and hopes for a better practice of both science and science studies. The book includes a new interview with Haraway herself, in which she discusses the key themes in her work as well as future writing plans. Donna Haraway: Live Theory is a key resource for anyone studying this pioneering thinker within the context of sociology, cultural studies, feminism and science studies.
