Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene. Experimental Futures (Experimental Futures: Technologocal Lives Scientific Arts Anthropological Voices)
Überblick:Pressestimmen 'Haraway models like few others deep intellectual generosity and curiosity. Staying with the Trouble cites students thinks with community activists and artists and writes alongside scientists and fiction writers. Haraway does not want you to read her; she wants you to read with her. She also insists on conversations with all kinds of storytellers: academics or not humans or not environmental humanities scholars or not.' --Astrida Neimanis 'Australian Feminist Studies ''In Staying with the Trouble we find real SF: science fiction science fact science fantasy speculative feminism speculative fabulation string figures so far. So many ways to look at the world and ourselves so many complicated ideas on how we critters will survive and thrive and die in the disturbing Chthulucene. Haraway is difficult to read. But the effort required is worth it.' -- (10/17/2016)'Chthulucene is not a simple word yet it is a productive motif for Haraway. With it she laces ideas from urban pigeons woolen coral reefs writing workshops Inupiat computer games canine estrogen and Black Mesa sheep. The thready and the tentacular form the subject and the framework of her theory-making as well as the structure of her writing.' -- (10/26/2016)'Staying with the Trouble is Haraway at her most accessible. Readers familiar with her work with recognize her characteristic style and language polysemous metaphors co-mingle with evocative refrains deep etymological readings and even the occasional sentence with internal rhyme schemes. . . . This is a work to provoke and inspire. It is a call to arms (or pseudopods as the case may be)!' -- (11/18/2016)'[W]e should take seriously the implications of kin versus family of kin as encompassing all non-human relations. There is an ethics here on a micro and macro level. Haraway is no moralist but replacing 'human relations' with 'kin' arguably brings about a transformation in our hierarchies and priorities - why not care as much about a wildflower as you do about your niece? If it is not a zero-sum game and let us hope it is not we can make room for all kinds of lives and all kinds of ways of living. Staying with the trouble is also a matter of sticking with all the things that currently live and will die alongside us whether we cause it or notice it or not.' -- (01/01/2017)'The book enacts different forms of analysis and activism. It is not only that the book transcends disciplinary boundaries of biology sciences studies art history philosophy and dense descriptions of political activism most often found in social sciences. These approaches are interwoven in a very rich and exquisite manner for which the author is well known.'-- (05/17/2017)'Staying with the Trouble is a kind of Whole Earth Catalogue of thought devices for attuning our senses to the damaged ecosystem of the still-blue planet. It makes It makes inspiring and imaginative use of science fiction art projects geology evolutionary theory developmental biology science and technology studies anthropology environmental activism philosophy feminism horticulture linguistics pigeon fancying and many other ways of thinking and knowing about ourselves our worlds and the many imbricate relations through which life on earth comes into being and dies.'-- (09/01/2017)'In advancing an approach that is at once hopeful but grounded attuned to the realities of history but open to the possibility of alternative futures--in other words in adamantly insisting on 'staying with the trouble' of the present--Haraway provides a ray of light in an otherwise- gloomy world of Anthropocene scholarship.'-- (07/01/2017)'For anthropologists Haraway's book will read as an invitation to think and write in terms that allow for symbiosis throughout.... Readers may not find clear road maps that guide them to struggle for more just flourishings or to understand the powerful and violent articulations of economies and ecologies in the Capitalocene. But they will perhaps rethink and expand the diverse relationalities that constitute the very preconditions of collective action. This is an invitation both to theorize and to make unexpected collaborations.'-- (11/01/2017)'As always [Haraway's] work is capacious sharp inventive and informed.'--Kyla Tompkins'American Quarterly' (01/12/2018) Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Donna J.
