MAKING ODDKIN: STORY TELLING FOR EARTHLY SURVIVAL
On the occasion of receiving the Wilbur L. Cross Medal for Distinguished Alumni, one of Yale’s highest honors, Donna J. Haraway gave a public lecture demonstrating the power of narratives that bring together biology, activism, and art. That speech, “Making Oddkin: Story Telling for Earthly Survival” is now available on YouTube! Click the title, (or here), to link to it. In the lecture, Haraway describes a series of “contact zones” that reveal practices for becoming worldly in a time of unprecedented environmental destruction.
