Sticky Fingers, or How to Love a Postmodern Child
Bunyard, Derek
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v6 n3 p292-300 2005
This article uses figurations taken from popular culture to explore Donna Haraway's concept of cyborg identities, extending this to include childhood. Starting from her identification of the image of the cyborg as an ironic metaphorical response to capitalism, two negative forms of identity are explored in relation to current technological and sociological imperatives. The first prompts a re-interrogation of the natural, and the second an equivalent questioning of the artificial.
