Description

This work brings together cyberfeminism, postmodern fiction, computing culture, materialist philosophy, and performance art to discuss and articulate the consequences of an increasingly synthetic, virtual and technological world. The contested and controversial zone of debate throughout these essays is the notion of the posthuman, the erotic relation between humans and machines, and the possibility of the cyborg as the free human. This collection aims to understand and analyze the implications of information and technology by drawing closely on cyber-punk writings by Pynchon and Ballard, as well as the materialist philosophies of Freud, Deleuze, and Haraway.
