  2. Aims of the Class • To discover/uncover the roles of masculine and feminine in science and capitalism according to Haraway • To deconstruct the white feminine myth of salvation • To apply the above to The National Geographic’s system of Gender, Science and Race

  3. Capitalism Cyborg Colonialism Desire Louis Leakey The “trio” Koko Modern Science Broken Globe Ethogram Ecosystem Carolyn Merchant Political vs Social HAM Key Terms, Concepts, Players

  4. The Death of Natureby Carolyn Merchant • What did the female represent? • What did the male represent? • What did the violation of the closed cosmos create in humanity?

  5. Guide Questions • Drawing a thread through the readings thus far, what themes/paradigms are reiterated in Haraway’s chapter? • How does the theme of the “white” female savior add to the discourse of Nature represented in the feminine? • Does Haraway believe that science acts in the bests interests of Nature?
