Cyberspace, the cyborg and cyberpunk have given feminists new imaginative possibilities for thinking about embodiment and identity in relation to techlogy. This is the first anthology of the key essays on these potent metaphors. Divided into three sections (Techlogy, Embodiment and Cyberspace; Cybersubjects: Cyborgs and Cyberpunks; Cyborg Futures), the book addresses different aspects of the human-techlogy interface. The extensive introduction surveys the ways cyborg and cyberspace metaphors have been used in relation to current critical theory and indicates the context for the specific essays. This is an invaluable guide for students studying any aspects of contemporary theory and culture. * Brings together in a unique collection the work of key authors in feminist and cyber theory * Demonstrates the wide range of contemporary critical work * Challenges constructions of gender, race and class * An extensive introduction surveys the ways cyborg and cyberspace metaphors have been used in relation to current critical theory * Brief section introductions indicate the context for the specific essays
