Digital Desire: Language, Identity and New Technologies
Cutting Edge (Group)
I.B.Tauris, Nov 4, 2000 - Art - 249 pages
This book explores the ways in which new technologies and scientific discourses are having a radical impact on today’s debates and issues of gender. The writers and creative artists contributing cover a wide terrain, including Cyberfeminism and artificial life, the body’s role in today’s technoculture, the gender politics of e-commerce technology, the Cyberflaneuse, and the creation of '‘digital communities.'’ Together they are mapping out how notions of self and its boundaries are now being questioned and changed.
