A Genealogy of Cybergothic: Aesthetics and Ethics in the Age of Posthumanism

This dissertation considers the long run convergence among gothic reviews and
humanism within the age of posthumanism and proposes “cyborgothic” as a brand new literary
genre that heralds that destiny. The convergence into account is already in

complications inherent in technology were dealt with in American society. The final
chapter proposes Marge Piercy’s He, She and Itas a similar cyborgothic textual content, which attempts
to increase the way to recognize the presence of the cyborg—one that's right now
aesthetical and ethical—so as to permit people and cyborgs to narrate one another on
equal phrases. hence, “cyborgothic” is being required as a literary try and current the
age of posthumanism that's not anthropocentric.
