  8. 8. A cyborg is a cybernetic organism, a hybrid of machine and organism, a creature of social reality as well as a creature of fiction. Donna J. Haraway, Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: The Reinvention of Nature. New York: Routledge, 1991. lisa.hager@uwc.edu || she, her, hers or they, them, theirs || @lmhager
  9. 9. lisa.hager@uwc.edu || she, her, hers or they, them, theirs || @lmhager Steampunk seeks to find a relationship with the world of gears, steel, and steam that allows machines to not only co- inhabit our world but to be partners in our journey. To be born, age, and die like we all must, that is not only true of humans, plants, rivers, animals but also of machines. This may be a crucial realignment of our relationship to the world, man- made and natural. (emphasis added)

  11. 11. Her airman’s uniform was miles better than any girls’ clothes. The boots clomped gloriously as she stormed to signals practice or firefighting drills, and the jacket had a dozen pockets, including special compartments for her command whistle and rigging knife. And Deryn didn’t mind the constant practice in useful skills like knife throwing, swearing, and not showing pain when punched. lisa.hager@uwc.edu || she, her, hers or they, them, theirs || @lmhager
  12. 12. female masculinity actually affords us a glimpse of how masculinity is constructed as masculinity. In other words, female masculinities are framed as the rejected scraps of dominant masculinity in order that male masculinity may appear to be the real thing J. Jack Halberstam, Female Masculinity. Durham: Duke University Press, 1998.lisa.hager@uwc.edu || she, her, hers or they, them, theirs || @lmhager

  17. 17. For a moment, he wondered at all the adjustments, small and large, that Deryn must have made in order to carry off her deception. The way she walked, talked, and stood, along with every social nuance, all of it had to be considered every second of every day. It was incredible to have succeeded at something so difficult . . . . Not that he minded seeing her in a jacket and trousers every day. It was part of the frisson of their romance.lisa.hager@uwc.edu || she, her, hers or they, them, theirs || @lmhager
  18. 18. Deryn was in the sort of evening dress that fashionable young women-about-town wore . . . Alek looked down at his own dress, so formal and old-fashioned with its fussy bows and bustle. He suddenly felt frumpy, whereas Deryn was positively stylish. Her short hair and slim figure, the core of her disguise as a midshipman, no longer looked masculine at all. lisa.hager@uwc.edu || she, her, hers or they, them, theirs || @lmhager
