Sammanfattning: In this essay I will discuss posthumanism and how we become humans. Through analyzing two science fiction works, one movie and one short story, I will discuss what it means to be human and how the male liberal subject of humanism need to be broadened and opened up to allow for other subjects to exist. By comparing two female robots, one from E.T.A Hoffman’s short story The Sandman, and one from the movie Ex Machina I will discuss how these robots are performing gender and human-ness. I will also discuss how these performances affect the humans around them, making them question their own humanness.
