THE PARADOX OF THE OTHER: DIFFICULTIES IN CLASSIFICATION

Eleventh Annual Brooklyn College Graduate English Conference

Promises of a cyborgian existence, free of patriarchal, capitalist, social, gender, and racial oppression (Haraway) here stand in stark contrast to the steadily proliferating forms of digital surveillance and control. Data, and their multiple arborisations, have become new epistemic landscapes. They have also become new existential territories (Guattari).
