Do gynoids dream of adenoidal sheep? The zinification of Donna Haraway’s “Cyborg Manifestoâ€�
“The cyborg does not dream of community on the model of the organic family, this time without the oedipal project. The cyborg would not recognize the Garden of Eden; it is not made of mud and cannot dream of returning to dust.”- Haraway (1991, p. 151)
Donna Haraway’s 1991 essay “A Cyborg Manifesto” is a classic feminist critique of identity politics using the cyborg metaphor, this being the extension of physicality through synthetic and often mechanical augmentation of the body.
Join Emily Kersing (feminist historian, geek chic poet and zine guru) in conversation with Dr John Lenarcic (RMIT School of Business IT and Logistics) as they unpack - with anarchic glee - Haraway’s musings on the limitations of conventional notions of gender and individuality in the nexus between natural life and artificial man-made machines.
