In the first interview of this section, Sonja Arndt highlights the political and ethical implications of working with others in diverse/international contexts, and about the importance of “recognizing those ‘relations of significant othernesses’ that Donna Haraway talks about, when we start to see ourselves as entangled with so much more than just the humans around us or in relationships with us”.
