The Cyborg in the Basement Manifesto, or, A Frankenstein of One’s Own

Cross-section of The Spectral Dollhouse

Cross-section of The Spectral Dollhouse

In November 2013, “The Cyborg in the Basement Manifesto, or, A Frankenstein of One’s Own: How I Stopped Hunting for Cyborgs and Created the Slightly Irregular Definition of Cyborgean Forms of Storytelling,” my hybrid essay combines excerpts from the dollhouse, memoir, narrative theory, and manifesto, and it went live alongside work from Donna Haraway in the feminist science fiction issue of Ada: Journal of Gender, New Media and Technology. This was a bucket list item for me–ever since I first read “A Cyborg Manifesto,” I wanted to be published in something alongside Haraway. This issue was edited by Alexis Lothian, who did a stellar job. My essay is now being taught in new media courses at University of Baltimore by Anastasia Salter, whose work I admire. That fact that my work is discussed alongside canonical works of science fiction concerning issues of feminism and new media is quite an honor and speaks to the nuances and complications of my literary approach to new media fiction and criticism.
