• The Eight Technologies of Otherness

Golding, Sue, ed. 1997, Book, The Eight Technologies of Otherness Routledge, London, UK. ISBN 9780415145794

Abstract or Description:

The Eight Technologies of Otherness is a bold and provocative re-thinking of identities, politics, philosophy, ethics, and cultural practices. In this groundbreaking text, old essentialism and binary divides collapse under the weight of a new and impatient necessity. Consider Sue Golding's Eight Technologies: curiosity, noise, cruelty, appetite, skin, nomadism, contamination, and dwelling. But why only eight technologies? And why these eight, in particular? Included in the answer are thirty-three artists, philosophers, filmmakers, writers, photographers, political militants, and pulp-theory practitioners whose work (or life) has contributed to the re-thinking of so-called 'otherness' and its various, raw technologies; to which this book bears witness, throws out a few clues. Plays with (and against).
