What is Cyborg Anthropology?
An Illustrated Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology is a Companion to the book A Complete Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology, by Amber Case and Maggie Nichols.
Cyborg Anthropology is a way of understanding how we live as technosocially connected citizens in the modern era. Our cell phones, cars and laptops have turned us into cyborgs. What does it mean to extend the body into hyperspace? What are the implications to privacy, information and the formation of identity? Now that we have a second self, how do we protect it?
A Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology covers various subjects such as time and space compression, hyperlinked memories, panic architecture, mobile technology, interface evaporation and how technology is changing the way we live.
Useful for researchers, scientists, interface designers, developers, professors, students, and anyone who engages with or wishes to better understand technology and culture.
