Cyberqueers - gender, sexuality and new technologies

At first we take a retro trip back to the mid 1980s, when Donna Haraway came up with the metaphor of the cyborg - “created in the post-gender world…dedicated to partialness, irony, intimacy and perversion”




– and we examine its significance for the concept and formation of gender and sexual identity. We then grasp the potential of cyborgs using queer theory and theme (reconstruction) of hybrid identities. In the end we pose several questions concerning new reproductive technologies, the use of fear and demonization in political debates and the boundaries of normality.
