Gaia as a Cybergoddess

by Tilton on December 7, 2012

After finishing my dissertation, I wanted to archive some of my previous presentations. During the course of looking through old hard drives and computers, I came across my first conference presentation. The conference was the 2005 Global Fusion Conference at Athens, Ohio. I was on a panel called “A Gaiaic Mediated World: The Media Effects on Worldwide Ecological Issues” with four of my friends from grad school. I wanted to take a “new media” approach to the issue. Thus, “Gaia as a Cybergoddess” was born. During this period, I was heavily influenced by Donna Haraway’s research on the cyborg and Sherry Turkle’s research on the second self online.
