Blurb/Shorttext:
This book investigates the multiple readings that arise when the division between the biological and technological is interrupted--here abjection is key because the binary between abjection and gadgetry gives multiple meanings to other binaries, including male/female. Using David Cronenberg's Videodrome and eXistenZ, I argue that multiple readings arise because of people's participation with electronically mediated technology. Indeed, abjection is salient because Cronenberg's films present an ambivalent relationship between people and technology; this relationship is often an uneasy one because technology changes people on both a somatic and cognitive level.
