Modest−Witness@Second−Millennium.FemaleMan−Meets−OncoMouse: Feminism and Technoscience

Front Cover
Modest_Witness@Second_Millenium.FemaleMan Meets_OncoMouse explores the roles of stories, figures, dreams, theories, facts, delusions, advertising, institutions, economic arrangements, publishing practices, scientific advances and politics in twentieth-century technoscience.

The book's title is an e-mail address. With it, Haraway locates herself and her readers in a sprawling net of associations more far-flung than the Internet. The address is not a cozy home. There is no innocent place to stand in the world where the book's author figure, FemaleMan, encounters DuPont's controversial laboratory rodent, OncoMouse.

Haraway is crazy like a fox. I'm never sure how much of her writing I should take seriously and how much she just throws out there to wake people's brains up. Regardless, she has some great ideas and some incredibly stupid ones, but her writing is never mediocre. Read full review
