Biofriction website: Peephole section

We are glad to inform you that we have created Peephole, a new section in our website.

Peephole section refers to Donna Haraway's critique of how the narrative of natural history has been articulated from masculinist and colonial epistemologies.

The name of the section shares Haraway's critique of how Realism does not appear to be a point of view, but appears as a peephole into the jungle where peace may be witnessed; but also how, paradoxically, there is a screen that mediates access to materials and operates again as a peephole.

Here, you will find videos of activities and different materials that we recommend you to check out.
