Abstract

The study aims to explore the Posthuman cyborg bodies in cyberpunk fiction. The gendered bodies in cyberpunk fiction are complicated, unclear, and open to investigation in various ways. The researcher employs Baxter's FPDA as a theoretical and methodological framework to study how the writer presents gendered bodies in cyberpunk fiction and the roles of posthuman cyborgs in it. Data analysis of Robson's novel Natural History shows that modern cyberpunk fiction has the power to deconstruct and reconstruct traditionally gendered bodies and presents a new form of bodies that are fluid, complex, and sometimes beyond imagination. These bodies are robust and flexible and transform into many forms to give new meanings to gendered bodies.
