About this event
Collaborative Screening Presented with Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts A post-film discussion with Dr. Elizabeth Chalecki ― UNO Assistant Professor of International Relations ― and Ash Eliza Smith ― artist, designer, and researcher ― will be facilitated by Bemis Curator-in-Residence Sylvie Fortin. Film Information Feminist thinker and historian of science Donna Haraway is perhaps best known as the author of two revolutionary works: the essay "A Cyborg Manifesto" and the book Primate Visions. These groundbreaking works challenged commonplace assumptions about the relationship between humans and machines and the role of gender. Story Telling for Earthly Survival features Haraway in a playful and engaging exploration of her life, influences, and ideas. A magnetic raconteur, Haraway touches on subjects including capitalism, science fiction writing as philosophical text, humans and dogs, and the suppression of women’s writing. A remarkable visit with a thinker of nimble and curious mind.
