A Genealogy of the Cyborgothic imagines a new literary genre emerging from gothic literature and science fiction that will help to envision a cyborg-friendly, non-anthropocentric posthuman society. Dongshin Yi introduces mothering as an aesthetic and ethical practice that can enable a posthumanist relationship between human and non-human beings as he examines novels like The Mysteries of Udolpho and Arrowsmith alongside philosophical and critical works by Edmund Burke, William James, and others.
