Technological Inter-Animation, Writ Large: Conclusion

  • Sheila J. Nayar


The book’s conclusion addresses the theme of technological determinism, one often raised apropos projects that foreground technology. Situating Renaissance Responses more concretely, if somewhat unapologetically, into that critical conversation, Nayar theoretically endorses and justifies its “soft determinism.” Nayar also looks beyond the Renaissance to assert something more wide-ranging regarding human-technology inter-animation, before returning to how the Renaissance seized upon technology’s potentials for nurturing new ways of conceiving and performing human identity and thereby for transforming who we are, how we think, and where we imagine our “selves” to be lodged.
