The Masculinities Conference at Kent State is already off to a great start. We are in the Q&A of the first session after Seth Friedman and Kerry Luckett gave their respective presentations on The Usual Suspects/Unbreakable and Zombie/Silence of the Lambs.

In particular, Kerry’s presentation got me thinking about my monstrous cyborgs encyclopedia article that I am currently writing. Skins and surfaces are important elements to consider when it comes to defining the cyborg as a monstrous hybrid being, because there are subversive cyborgs that hide their hybridity (and can be revealed).

Even though this isn’t a science fiction conference, we just went into Luke Skywalker’s asexual behavior save the relationship/flirtation with his sister. I knew that this would be a good conference!
