Donna Haraway speaks with erudition about dogs and companion species, cyborgs, humans, machines, technoscience, genetics, gender, nature, culture, consciousness, philosophy, emergent ontologies, organisms, social relationships, Michel Foucault, primatology, and socialist feminism. She has earned degrees in Zoology and Philosophy
before completing a Ph.D. in Biology at Yale, where she wrote her dissertation on the functions of metaphor in shaping the field of developmental biology in the twentieth century. A truly interdisciplinary scholar, Haraway has taught in fields that range from feminist theory
to anthropology, and was awarded the highest honor given by the Society for Social Studies of Science in 2000. For 28 years she has contributed to the creation and evolution of
the History of Consciousness graduate program at UC Santa Cruz.
