Exploring the relations of ethnicity and technology in the global age, 'Bodies and/as Technology' analyzes how cultural discourses about ethnic bodies and information technology are reflected in American science fiction literature and film. Reading the novels of Alejandro Morales ('The Brick People', 'The Rag Doll Plagues'), Larissa Lai ('When Fox is a Thousand', 'Salt Fish Girl') and Nalo Hopkinson ('Brown Girl in the Ring', 'Midnight Robber') as counter-discourses to the popular works 'Blade Runner' (Ridley Scott), 'Neuromancer' (William Gibson), and 'The Matrix' film trilogy (Andy and Larry Wachowski), this study applies postcolonial theory to science fiction and argues for a transnational perspective on theoretical, literary, and cinematic imageries of the intersections of globalization, information technology, and ethnicity.
