“The Cyborg Manifesto” rethinks 1980s American socialist feminism in the context of C3I, command-control-communications-intelligence of the electronic battlefield, and of the sciences and natural-social worlds annealed in that cauldron. Cyborgs are specific kinds of worldly entities; they are not classical machine-human hybrids, but rather condensed nodes within the situated historical implosion of organisms, information sciences and digital machines, and human bodies and lives. Refigured for feminist, queer, antiracist, anti-capitalist, and pro-earth sciences and politics, cyborgs announce dangerous but promising possibilities.

Keywords:   command control communications intelligence, cyborg, feminism, queer theory, companion species, socialist-feminism
