Few scholars have been as influential as Donna Haraway and Anna Tsing in imagining new ways of existing in a multispecies world at the edge of extinction. Join us for an evening of conversation with two creative and inspiring thinkers on the enduring legacies of plantations, the possibilities for life in the Antropocene, and the potentiality of a planet shaped by a symbiotic relations, what Haraway terms the Chthulucene, along with other real and imagined worlds. The conversation is a part of the Humanities Without Boundaries series, presented in partnership with the Andrew W. Mellon Sawyer Seminar.

Haraway is a distinguished Professor Emerita in the department of History of Consciousness at the University of California at Santa Cruz and Anna Tsing is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
