Episode Eleven: Interview with Tamara Banbury and Kelly Fritsch

In this episode, Jill interviews Tamara Banbury and Kelly Fritsch about their research into CyberPunk 2077‘s SciFi depiction of cyborg-y-ness, and the complex relationship between popular conceptions of cyborgs, and disability. Examining Cyberpunk 2077’s disturbing, but hardly unique, narrative of the (lack of) place of disabled people in the future, Tamara and Kelly use Critical Disability Studies to trouble our futuristic and current narratives regarding technology and the body.
