Dive into the world of Posthuman Disability Studies through Richard Powers' Twenty-First-Century fiction, where science, technology, and art converge to offer a unique perspective on our rapidly evolving reality. Have you ever wondered about the role of fictional characters with disabilities in navigating the complexities of a technologically advancing society? How do these texts push the boundaries of what it means to be human and disabled, fostering new theories, research, and artistic expressions? Join us as we explore Powers' novels, where we will unpack and challenge dominant notions of humanity as we celebrate the disruptive potential of disability.
