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

humanism within the age of posthumanism and proposes “cyborgothic” as a brand new literary

to boost the way to recognize the presence of the cyborg—one that's instantaneously
aesthetical and ethical—so as to permit people and cyborgs to narrate one another on
equal phrases. therefore, “cyborgothic” is being required as a literary try to current the
age of posthumanism that's not anthropocentric.
