Postnaturalism: Frankenstein, Film, and the Anthropotechnical Interface

Postnaturalism offers an original account of human-technological coevolution and argues that film and media theory, particularly, needs to be reevaluated from the perspective of material interfaces in a constantly changing environment. Extrapolating from Frankenstein films and the resonances they establish between a hybrid monster and spectator hooked into the machinery of cinema, Shane Denson engages debates in science studies and the philosophy of technology to rethink histories of cinema, media, and technology and the affective channels of our own embodiment. The book includes a foreword by media theorist Mark B. N. Hansen.
