One of the treasured books I carried with me from the USA to Paris to Berlin is my heavily marked up copy of the Haraway Reader from grad school. The book give me my first, and partial, introduction to feminism, science and materialism as a tripartite and coextensive site of inquiry and thought. It also taught me a lot about how to think and write. As an historian of technology and media theorist--topics that are sometimes susceptible to a kind of de-historicization through the supposed neutrality of "technology" or "information"--I've tried to keep abreast of this area, particularly as folks like Mara Mills bring new topics like disability into the analytical mix. For that reason this announcment jumped out at me. I don't think I can make it to NY in February, but maybe you can.
