In this absorbing and insightful book, Jennifer Rhee traces the provocative and productive connections of contemporary robots in technology, film, art, and literature. Focusing on the twinned processes of anthropomorphization and dehumanization, she analyzes the coevolution of cultural and technological robots and artificial intelligence, arguing that it is through the conceptualization of the human and the dehumanized that these multiple spheres affect and transform each other.

In partnership with the VCU Libraries.
