In this online meeting, we will do a close reading of the influential essay ‘A Cyborg Manifesto’ by Donna Haraway and other texts critiquing it. We will discuss its impact on ecofeminist thought and the arts, as well as the ethics of care, utopian visions and the robots among us.
The meeting will start with a short presentation giving context to the topic, the text and the authors and editors, and will be followed by collective reading and informal discussion.
No previous knowledge of the topic, or the publication is necessary. The text will be distributed in the meeting.
