La fraternidad de los cuerpos posthumanos. La ciencia ficción como territorio de reproducción y de resistencia del imaginario masculino tradicional
Ruido, María
Universitat de Barcelona
This paper analyses the representations of the body present in contemporary science-fiction literature and film. Using theoretical concepts by Althusser, Foucault and Haraway, the text establishes first a typology of cybernetic organisms in contemporary culture and reviews its presence and ideological implications in films like Robocop (1987), Johny Mnemonic (1995) or Matrix (1999). The paper argues for a self-conscience as political and historical subjects in order to avoid falling into a fallacious cyberandroginy that reinforces phallogocentric power structures.
