Donna Haraway Storytelling for Earthly Survival: Screening & Panel Discussion

  • Houdini Kino 173 Badenerstrasse Zürich, ZH, 8004 Switzerland (map)

This event is part of the event series Imag(in)ing Future Bodies - Engagements of Gender, Race & Tech.

About Haraway: "Haraway is a passionate and discursive storyteller, and the film is structured around a series of discussions held in the California home she helped build by hand, on subjects including the capitalism and the anthropocene (a term she "uses but finds troubling"), science fiction writing as philosophical text, unconventional marital and sexual partnerships, the role of Catholicism in her upbringing, humans and dogs, the suppression of women’s writing, the surprisingly fascinating history of orthodontic aesthetics, and the need for new post-colonial and post-patriarchal narratives. It is a remarkably impressive range, from a thinker with a nimble and curious mind." - Icarus Films

After the screening there will be a short panel discussion moderated by Hannah Schoch. The panelists include activist and comedian Edwin Ramirez, scholar Zoë Lehmann Imfeld, PhD, and Morgane A. Ghilardi, MA.
