Summary
Imagining Slaves and Robots in Literature, Film, and Popular Culture: Reinventing Yesterday's Slave with Tomorrow's Robot is an interdisciplinary study that seeks to investigate and speculate about the relationship between technology and human nature through popular culture. Imagining Slaves and Robots in Literature, Film, and Popular Culture seeks to gain a better understanding of how slaves are created and justified in the imaginations of a supposedly civilized nation. It is a timely and creative analysis of the ways in which we domesticate technology and the manner in which the history of slavery continues to be utilized in contemporary society
