SANTOS, M. C. M. D. dos. Quem pode falar, onde e como? uma conversa "não inocente" com Donna Haraway. Cadernos Pagu, Campinas, SP, n. 5, p. 43–72, 2009. Disponível em: Acesso em: 10 dez. 2023.


O artigo analisa dois aspectos da "doutrina feminista da objetividade" de Donna Haraway. Primeiro, argumento que Haraway propõe uma "política de diferença" que acaba negando a possibilidade de identificação das próprias diferenças (entre mulheres). Segundo, argumento que a democratização do conhecimento científico e feminista torna-se muito difícil se a "tradução", proposta por Haraway, ocorrer unidirecionalmente (apenas da rua para a academia), somente em uma língua (inglês) e linguagem (a acadêmica).


The article analyses two aspects of Donna Haraway's "feminist doctrine of objectivity." First, I argue that Haraway's "politics of difference" ends up negating the possibility for the identification of differences (among women). Secondly, I argue that the democratization of scientific and feminist knowledge becomes very difficult if "translation" is unidirectional (only from the street to academia), only in one idiom (English) and language (academic).
