Sorry – I don’t read Sci-Fi books, see Sci-Fi films or play Sci-Fi games. Thinking machines of posthuman worlds. Is it because I am woman – already a non-human? Never really hu-MAN but already Other – a little less, a little too-much, not norm(al), not really a part of the One and only. Always already different!
To be honest I find the non-fiction world with all our constitutive companion species much more interesting too explore.
A posthumanist reading does not facilitate a specifically gendered de-coding of humanism and I find a sort of colonial exclusiveness of the chosen fiction examples, a sort of hegemonic undertone leaving socio-material configurations behind in a virtual tug of war. (Hopefully) ‘we’ are not all sci-fi imaginations but entangled naturecultures in new figurations:
