Donna J. Haraway published the world famous Manifesto for Cyborgs in 1985, an ironic social critique of the political and social conditions in the US political and scientific world at the time. Her work is still known, appreciated, but also feared and criticized as a contemporary testimony about the critical political conditions in science, technology, feminism and society.
On November 30, 2022, Felix Grewe will held an online talk about the Manifesto for Cyborgs as part of Prof. Dr. Stella Villarmea’s course on contemporary women philosophers (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain). The online lecture is not open to the public.
Felix Grewe is a Research Fellow at the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists (Paderborn University) and researches in the teaching and research area EcoTechGender on Haraway’s theory of the dissolution of boundaries.
The Teaching and Research Area EcoTechGender was founded by Ruth E. Hagengruber at the Department of Philosophy, Paderborn University in 2006.
Economy, Ecology, Technology and Gender are today one of the most challenging and decisive factors of our society and predicts the future humanity. The teaching- and research area EcoTechGender is dedicated to the philosophic analysis of the relation between these topics. Our research and teaching focusses on the interactions between those categories including the influence on daily political and societal issues.
