|Title:||Cyborg as Commodity: Exploring Conception of Self-Identity, Body and Citizenship within the Context of Emerging Transplant Technologies|

|Abstract:||This paper explores how advances in transplant technologies shape conceptions of self-identity, embodiment and citizenship. Drawing on the posthuman writing of Donna Haraway and from phenomenological interviews, I explore ambivalence towards the commodification of the cyborg-body, suggesting that biotechnology may potentially lead to a dystopian posthuman consumer society.|
