∗ Response-ability is a term coined by Donna J. Haraway referring to developing our ability to respond thoughtfully and with intention to that which is around us. In Embodied Experiences in the Environment, we practice our ability to engage our full sense in response mode, including that stillness and non-action are responses. We practice kindness towards the earth, our fellow humans and critters. Read more about Donna J. Haraway’s theories in Staying with the Trouble: Making Kind with the Chthulucene, published by Duke University Press.
