Trans/forming the Machine: Feminist Interventions in Digital Poetics
In the twelfth century, Hugh of Saint Victor compared the temporal world to “flood water sweeping past,” and Bernard of Cluny imagined it to be unfixed and unstable like “streams of water.” Linking apocalyptic imaginings and temporal anxieties with the flux of liquid landscapes was not uncommon in the Middle Ages.
