N. Katherine Hayles is Professor of Literature at Duke University, and is the author of How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics, Literature, and Informatics (1999) and My Mother Was a Computer: Digital Subjects and Literary Texts (2005). Her most recent book, How We Think: Digital Media and Contemporary Technogenesis (2012) argues for, and provides a framework for, the unification of two humanistic fields of study that are shockingly disparate: media theory and digital humanities. How We Think leads us to re-imagine not only how we think about computers, but how we use them to think.
