Deleuze and Baudrillard: From Cyberpunk to Biopunk
Sean McQueen theorises shifts in and across critical approaches to capitalism, science, technology, psychoanalysis, literature and cinema and media studies. He also brings renewed Marxian readings to cyberpunk texts previously theorised by Deleuze and Baudrillard, and places them at the heartof the emergence of biopunk and its relation to biocapitalism by mapping their generic, technoscientific, libidinal and economic exchanges.Biocapitalism is the frontline of capitalism today that promises to enrich and prolong our lives and threatens to extend capitalism's capacity to command our hearts and minds. At the dawn of the Deleuzian century and the biotech century, we are out of control, becoming contagious. Cyberpunk is over,and biopunk is the literature and film of this new space.
