  • Seas of Data; or, The Oceanographer in the Archive

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The ocean looked the same as ever.When Matthew Fontaine Maury received his sailing orders, he made for the library. Having recently passed his naval examination, he had been appointed sailing master of the sloop-of-war USS Falmouth in 1831, with orders to sail for the Pacific via Cape Horn. Such was the Cape’s notoriety among seamen that Maury decided to take every possible precaution, spending the weeks before the Falmouth’s departure looking for hydrographic records of winds and currents in the area in order to plan his route. The search took him across all of New York City, but the sailing directions he needed could not be found.2 As soon as the Falmouth set sail, Maury began writing them himself.3 In ... Read More

  • Feminist Digital Ecology: Mimesis, Fictocriticism and Altering
           Technological Space

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This book is a theoretical fiction about postmodernism. A theoretical fiction, because I treat discursive ideas and arguments in a way analogous to how a novelist treats characters and events.In Steven Shaviro’s episodic e-text, Doom Patrols, the modus operandi is mimesis, not only as a feature of media to be critiqued but also as a mode of critique in itself, wherein formal attributes of the text mimic the subject matter to explore their conceptual incongruencies. A prime example is the eponymous titles of the essay chapters, each suggesting the focus will be on an actual famous person: “David Cronenberg,” “Bill Gates,” and so on. But these names are ciphers for Shaviro’s theoretical exploration of postmodern ... Read More

  • What Do Sex Robots Want' Representation, Materiality, and Queer Use

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What do sex robots want' The question cuts at least two ways. On the one hand, it is a rhetorical, even satirical provocation that evokes a familiar query—what do women want'—posed by baffled men throughout the twentieth century (from Freud to Mel Gibson), which exposes the almost comical androcentrism of an ontological framework that regards women’s desire as mysteriously opaque. In this sense, the question implies an affinity between sex robots and the organic human women they are designed to imitate, both of which, according to humanist models, are adjacent to the human category of “Man.”1On the other hand, I pose the question sincerely, naively, even perversely. Sex robots, like all robots (and all objects) ... Read More
