As with Haraway's transgressive figures, the popular culture cyborg is never far
from a threatening monstrosity. In regards to digital literature, we may use the
concept of “cyborg author” to refer to the combination of human and machine
producing texts with literary qualities. Whereas the concept of cyborg has been
stretched to its limits by counting a person with glasses as one, the aim here is
not to claim that a writer hacking away with her typewriter is a cyborg author.
Rather, I am ...

So, risking falling into the 'tourism of the soul' that Wendy Rose warned against, I
will outline three different readings of a popular author, most of whose readers
probably have no interest in women's studies, but whose fiction appears in
women's studies courses and is also an object of contention in womanist/feminist
literary criticism and politics. Before engaging with these three readings, consider
a short construction of the text of the author's life, a text that will become part of
my ...

This notion leads to the more complex forms of cyborg author formations. The
extreme form here is the approach where the whole World Wide Web is seen as
a cyborg author (Wall 1994). The web here is seen as a complex tool that plays
an inter gral part in the creative process of authoring digital literature: “The cyborg
Web is the group of circumstances that leads to the creation of a text and the
mechanism by which a text is assembled from existing conditions” (Wall 1994).

The natural sciences are much more likely to cite recent research and articles,
whereas for many areas of the humanities and social sciences, citations may be
loaded toward a much smaller group of older foundational texts (Hargens 2000).

number of times a text is cited.2 While acknowledging the indeterminacy of the
data involved, comparison of author h-indexes does provide a rough indication of

Is not one of the most effective critical procedures to cross wires that do not
usually touch: to take a major classic (text, author, notion) and read it in a short-
circuiting way, through the lens of a “minor” author, text, or conceptual apparatus
(“minor” should be understood here in Deleuze's sense: not “of lesser quality,”
but marginalized, disavowed by the hegemonic ideology, or dealing with a “lower
,” less dignified topic)? If the minor reference is well chosen, such a procedure
can lead to ...

The Herzfelde-edited NeueJugend appeared intermittently between 1916 and
1917, and its circle of artists and writers also published an almanac of antiwar
writings in 1916 as well as two portfolios oflithographs by Grosz in 1917.18 It was
in NeueJugend that some of the ideas and visual strategies of Berlin Dada were
first developed—most notably, in the later numbers, Dada's heterogeneous
typography and its provocative strategies for laying out text and image. These
included the ...

And if technology is the element that shapes civilization, modified humans are an
important part of futurological speculations, presented in popular texts (Dmitruk,
2013, p. 19). One of the popular themes in texts of culture is using technology for
military purposes: cyborgs are equipped with various modifications which greatly
improve their physical capabilities. ... The author of the short story, Johnny
Mnemonic, from 1981, William Gibson, presented a different kind of cyborgization
