This article focuses upon the sexual politics of contemporary cyborg icono graphy. It interrogates the manner in which representational practices confirm or challenge gender regulation and explores the links between the cyborg and the queer. Finally, the potential of 'cyborg theology' is discus sed. What are the implications for women of this profoundly sacramental theology which challenges dominant understandings of imminence and transcendence?
