Cyborg As Commodity: Exploring Conceptions of Self-Identity, Body and Citizenship Within the Context of Emerging Transplant Technologies
This paper explores how advances in transplant technologies shape conceptions of self-identity, embodiment and citizenship. Drawing on the posthuman writing of Donna Haraway and through phenomenological interviews, I explore ambivalence towards the commoditization of the cyborg-body, suggesting that biotechnology may potentially lead to a dystopian posthuman consumer society.
