Abstract:

Periphery is as much about the female perspective of the future as it is an exploration of individual identity in a world increasingly dominated by technology. How do we define our humanity, if not by the way we connect to others? Yet, even in the realm of the physical and the sensual, technology continues to change perspectives on what it means to be human. Through the stories collected in Periphery, we experience the intersection between a number of possible futures, and how we will continue to discover through our fallible emotions what it means to be human. Featuring contributions from: Marianne de Pierres, Gwyneth Jones, Kristyn Dunnion, Lyda Morehouse, Tracey Shellito, Melissa Scott, Carolyn Ives Gilman, Jean Stewart, Catherine Lundoff, Elspeth Potter, Cecilia Tan and Sharon Wachsler. Edited by Lynne Jamneck.
