The 2018 Kresge College Commencement Speaker will be Donna Haraway, Distinguished Professor Emerita in the History of Consciousness here at the University of California Santa Cruz.  Donna earned her PhD in Biology at Yale in 1972. She writes and teaches in science and technology studies, feminist theory, and multispecies studies. An ardent undergraduate teacher, she has also served as thesis adviser for over 60 doctoral students. Donna came to UCSC in 1980 from The Johns Hopkins University’s History of Science Department to the first tenured Feminist Theory position in the United States. Her first college at UCSC was Kresge. She is currently an active participant in the Science and Justice Research Center. Donna trains seriously with dogs in the sport of agility, but mainly lives and plays with her companions, human and more than human.

Her books include Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin inthe Chthulucene; Manifestly Haraway (2016); When Species Meet (2008); The Companion Species Manifesto (2003); The Haraway Reader (2004); Modest_Witness@Second_Millennium (1997, 2nd ed 2018); Simians, Cyborgs, and Women (1991); Primate Visions (1989); and Crystals, Fabrics, and Fields (1976, 2004). A feature-length film made by Fabrizio Terravova, titled Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival, was released in 2016. With Adele Clarke she has co-edited Making Kin Not Population (Prickly Paradigm Press, 2018), which addresses questions of human numbers, feminist anti-racist reproductive and environmental justice, and multispecies flourishing.
