Cyborg in Science Fiction and Cyborg in Social Realm

I stumbled upon an old research project which I prepared for a course titled Gender, Photography and New Technologies while studying for my Masters in London 1999. It was published by the then e-magazine called ZAYAC in Macedonia of which I was a contributor. 11 years on and still highly relevant.

“While the science fiction cyborgs are described as strong, powerful, supernatural and artificial human-machines, the phenomenon called online communication has produced new form of disembodied cyborgs. But, this can lead to losing control over the actual ‘self’ and the line between imagination and reality is blurred” says the research.

From Cyber Femme and androids, to Military / Medicine Cyborgs and self-run computers, read the extract on Cyborg in Science Fiction and Cyborg in Social Realm.

Sorry, lost the full copy which was saved on a floppy disk.
