How Like a Leaf: An Interview with Donna Haraway
Haraway's works have contributed to the study of both human-machine and human-animal relations. Her works have sparked debate in primatology , philosophy , and developmental biology. Bernal Award, for her "distinguished contributions" to the field. Donna Jeanne Haraway was born in in Denver, Colorado. Haraway's father was a sportswriter for The Denver Post and her mother, who came from a heavily Irish Catholic background, died from a heart attack when Haraway was 16 years old. Growing up around her father's adoration for sports writing is a major part in her own love for writing.
The two of them would have dinner conversations about words and their fascination with them. Haraway majored in Zoology, with minors in philosophy and English at the Colorado College , on the full-tuition Boettcher Scholarship. So, there was money available for educating even Irish Catholic girls' brains. Although most of Haraway's earlier work was focused on emphasizing the masculine bias in scientific culture, she has also contributed greatly to feminist narratives of the twentieth century. For Haraway, the Manifesto offered a response to the rising conservatism during the s in the United States at a critical juncture at which feminists, in order to have any real-world significance, had to acknowledge their situatedness within what she terms the "informatics of domination.
According to Haraway's "Manifesto", "there is nothing about being female that naturally binds women together into a unified category. There is not even such a state as ' being ' female, itself a highly complex category constructed in contested sexual scientific discourses and other social practices". To ground her argument, Haraway analyzes the phrase "women of color", suggesting it as one possible example of affinity politics.
Using a term coined by theorist Chela Sandoval, Haraway writes that "oppositional consciousness" is comparable with a cyborg politics, because rather than identity it stresses how affinity comes as a result of "otherness, difference, and specificity".
Donna Haraway - Wikipedia
Haraway's cyborg is a set of ideals of a genderless, race-less, more collective and peaceful civilization with the caveat of being utterly connected to the machine. Her new versions of beings reject Western humanist conceptions of personhood and promote a disembodied world of information and the withering of subjectivity. The collective consciousness of the beings and their limitless access to information provide the tools with which to create a world of immense socio-political change through altruism and affinity, not biological unity.
In her essay Haraway challenges the liberal human subject and its lack of concern for collective desires which leaves the possibility for wide corruption and inequality in the world.
A world of beings with a type of shared knowledge could create a powerful political force towards positive change.
