Edges and Ecotones: Donna Haraway's Worlds at UCSC
- Author(s): Haraway, Donna

Donna Haraway came to UC Santa Cruz in 1980 as a professor in the History of Consciousness Program (Histcon), one of the first interdisciplinary graduate programs in the United States. Her position in feminist theory within Histcon's graduate program was probably the first one of its kind in the country. While Haraway's philosophy and theories infuse this narrative, the focus and scope of this oral history is her life at UC Santa Cruz. Haraway's interest in aurality and in the interview format has inspired us to provide the recordings of her interview(s) MP3 format on the Library's website, in addition to this transcript. While Haraway lightly edited the manuscript in places, for the most part the transcript can be used as a finding aid to the oral interview.
