CFP: YOUNG SCHOLARS Session
Conference: Crossing the Border of Humanity: Cyborgs in Ethics, Law, and Art
December 14–15, 2021
Medical University of Łódź, Poland & University of Warwick, Coventry, UK
The idea of being a cyborg is as alluring as it is be repulsive (at least to some). Literary and pop-cultural visions of becoming a cyborg and becoming a nation of cyborgs have seductively taken hold of our imagination, resulting in a prevalent, yet simplistic, image of a one-laser-eyed being with a robotic limb. This unanimous picture ostensibly evident what a cyborg is and what (s)he/it is not. We are, after all, by no means something like a Borg!
