Example text

Turning to consider similar domestic sites outside of this North American context, her approach would initially appear to hold a certain interpretive resonance. 20 Excavations revealed the structural foundations of two workers’ cottages based in Alderley Edge, a north-west rural village located in Cheshire, approximately 25 km away from central Manchester. Although elements of the site could be traced back to the seventeenth century,21 the vast majority of recovered artefacts dated to the inter-war period of the twentieth century, when the two houses had been internally subdivided into four households, and accommodated four local families: the Perrins, Barbers, Barrows and Ellams.

21 A key feature to note in this text is that the tensions and uncertainties of the figure of the cyborg, even of the delusional temporalities and uncertainties of the films like Robocop, are mobilized but demoted to a safe story of roboboy, where a ‘genuine’, intact child subjectivity is portrayed as hidden within a mechanical exterior. No cyborg hybridization is depicted here that might offer some more creative mutual engagement with changing technologies – but instead it is (almost) a straightforward (technophiliac) story of the imprisonment and liberation of a pre- existing subjectivity.
