Defined as that space of collision between human and machine, where technology and humanity fuse, is the prosthetic territory. Within that territory a new political and cultural struggle emerges, a territory where theory and practice can converge. The essayists in this volume approach in innovative ways topics in feminism, Marxism, postcolonialism, queer theory, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, political theory, and the critique of racism and technique. Defined as that space of collision between human and machine, where technology and humanity fuse, is the prosthetic territory of postmodern existence. Within that territory a new terrain of political and cultural struggle is emerginga weird place where theory and practice can converge.This collection of essays maps the newest terrains of political struggle by deploying a range of poststructuralist concepts embodied in phrases such as technology of writing, corporeal city, cartographic self, geography of the body, words as ligatures, battleground of bodily form, semiotic guerrilla warfare, veil of print, textual architecture, and materiality of the printed text. Such terms allow the authors to approach in innovative ways topics in feminism, Marxism, postcolonialism, queer theory, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, political theory, and the critique of racism and technique.
