Modest−Witness@Second−Millennium.FemaleMan−Meets−OncoMouse: Feminism and Technoscience
Modest_Witness@Second_Millenium.FemaleMan_Meets_OncoMouseexplores the roles of stories, figures, dreams, theories, facts, delusions, advertising, institutions, economic arrangements, publishing practices, scientific advances, and politics in twentieth-century technoscience.
The book's title is an e-mail address. With it, Haraway locates herself and her readers in a sprawling net of associations more far-flung than the Internet. The address is not a cozy home. There is no innocent place to stand in the world where the book's author figure, FemaleMan, encounters DuPont's controversial laboratory rodent, OncoMouse.
