The Strange Relationship Between Cyberpunk Sci-Fi and 90s Post-Modern Academia #cyberpunk
For those who didn’t directly experience the cyberpunk/cyberculture era of the late 80s and 90s, it might be surprising to discover the extent to which postmodern academia of the period embraced this lowbrow “golden ghetto” (Gibson) literature.
