Paratechnologies: Prosthesis and the Exercise of Medicalized Control in Julie Czerneda’s Left Foot on a Blind Man

Time for something a little different. Normally I keep my academic life and my Speculating Canada life a bit separate (which is challenging because I research Canadian Speculative Fiction. I recently found out that one of my academic papers “Paratechnologies: Prosthesis and the Exercise of Medicalized Control in Julie Czerneda’s Left Foot on a Blind Man” was recorded by the organizers of a conference that I presented at titled Technology/Politics. I thought that I would share this paper with you so that you have a chance to see an academic paper on Canadian SF if you haven’t had a chance to attend an academic conference.

Keep in mind that the expectation for conferences is that one reads one’s paper directly from the page, so this will not be the same as when I present at Fan Conventions or other public venues.

I want to think the Technology/Politics conference organizers for all of their hard work organizing the conference and for providing me with this link.
