Donna Haraway: “Staying with the Trouble: Becoming Worldly with Companion Species”
What does it mean to inherit the histories of companion species on a blasted earth where getting on together is still the task? “Staying with the Trouble” works through ontological, ethical, and ecological knots in multispecies contact zones, where human exceptionalism gives way to the “open” of companion species: the rapidly growing world of 21st-century urban chickens and the families who depend on them in Botswana and Montana, and the Navajo Sheep Project that brings the Iberian Churro into worlds of alliance and conflict.
Donna Haraway is Distinguished Professor of History of Consciousness at UCSC.
