Reviews

Black Bodies and Transhuman Realities presents a series of insightful essays, from both established and emerging scholars, that significantly advance many aspects of our understanding of Black identity in relationship to transhumanist thought. Incorporating scholarship on African-American literature, art, media, and music, this is an important collection for anyone interested in understanding the intersection between science, technology, and the Black body through a transhumanist lens.--Ken McLeod, University of Toronto
Melvin G. Hill's volume makes a valuable contribution to the emerging discussion of Blackness and transhumanism at a turning point in the early twenty-first century. At a time when black people are still negotiating what it means to be Black and human, Black Bodies and Transhuman Realities explores the frontier of blackness, politics and aesthetics of enhancement.--Reynaldo Anderson, Harris-Stowe State University
