Good news: I submitted a proposed piece for “Doctor Who Week” on In Media Res, a Media commons project featuring multimodal, collaborative, online scholarship. Tentatively entitled “The Last Human: Doctor Who and the Posthuman,” my short essay invites a discussion about Lady Cassandra O’Brian (from the second episode of the first seasons of the reboot) and the ambivalent relationship the series has toward humans, nonhumans, and posthumans.
