Critical Discussion

Tentacular thinking!

The Art of Living on a Damaged Planet with Helga Jakobson

  • September 27, 2018, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
  • Duke of Kent Legion, 227 McDermot Avenue

Free, everyone welcome!

Following Donna Haraway’s ethos of tentacular thinking, Theory and Beer will engage with excerpts from Haraway’s book, Staying With the Trouble, which acts as a call to rethink and “reworld” the time we are living. The discussion will bring up ideas around symbiosis, companion creatures and SF (science fiction, speculative fabulation, string figures, speculative feminism, so far).  

This month you can watch a talk by Donna Haraway Anthropocene Capitalocene Chthulucene: Staying with the Trouble here: https://vimeo.com/97663518
