Braidotti on “the ‘other’ of the high-tech clean and efficient bodies…”

While trying to cook up a class proposal for a research seminar tentatively entitled “How do you make yourself a posthuman?” I came across this line in Braidotti’s “Posthuman, All Too Human Towards a New Process Ontology” (201-2, my emphasis):

“Haraway, not unlike my nomadic subject, prefers instead multiplicities and multiply displaced identities. Non-linearity, non-fixity and non-unitary subjectivity are the priority, and they are situated in close proximity to woman, the native, the dispossessed, the abused, the excluded, the ‘other’ of the high-tech clean and efficient bodies that contemporary culture sponsors. This is comparable to Deleuze’s attempts to rethink the becoming-animal as a figuration for the humanoid hybrids we are becoming.”
