On humanoids, avatars and the rest of us: feminist analytics and the designing of our new others

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

The paper discuss the challenges and potentials that not only a post-positivist but also a post-humanist understanding of the formation of subjectivity, of sex/gender and of gendered positioning encounters when considering the intra-action of attempted technological imitations of the human and of swex/gender in the enactment of that imitation. Examples involve avatars from computer games, robots, mainly androids and geminoids and perhaps most importantly the Spaces between imaginaries and their materializations within this broad field of Technologies. Late in the paper, I will include figures from the romantic movie HER.
