Bits of Life
Feminism at the Intersections of Media, Bioscience, and Technology
Bits of Life assumes a posthuman definition of the body. It is grounded in questions about today's biocultures, which pertain neither to humanist bodily integrity nor to the anthropological assumption that human bodies are the only ones that matter. Editors Anneke Smelik and Nina Lykke aid in mapping changes and transformations and in striking a middle road between the metaphor and the material. In exploring current reconfigurations of bodies and embodied subjects, the contributors pursue a technophilic, yet critical, path while articulating new and thoroughly appraised ethical standards.
About the Authors
"A speedy, smart, provocative, hybrid assemblage of essays on contemporary technoscientific and mass(ively) mediated cultural transformations that is deeply invested in helping us think our way toward possible futures. The editors map the multiple intellectual and institutional histories informing the prolific imaginaries, and contested terrain, of feminist cultural studies of technoscience today."—Jackie Orr, Syracuse University
