Twenty-three contributors explore the questions: How exactly do technologies produce bodies (and subjects) that are recognizably raced, gendered and sexualized? How can technology be used to transform cultural conceptions of gender, sexuality, and embodiment? And less explicitly: What do cyberfeminist engagements with technoscientific discourses look like? Volume includes examples (and analysis)of work by female techno-artists creatively interpreting the intersections between desire, the body, science and machines. Notable essays by Margaret Morse and Sara Diamond on virtual gender, and by Lisa Cartwright and Evelynn Hammonds on imaging technologies and the production of racial and gendered norms. Together these artists and theorists consider "the complex territory" between pleasure/desire and fear/suspicion of technoscience and cyberculture from a number of feminist perspectives.
