Reading technoscientific narratives as cultural texts can make a significant contribution to feminist critique of technoscience. This article examines the cultural imaginary of contemporary technoscience focusing on the peculiar way in which animal cloning is narrated to the public. The pervasive “cloning” story that highlights the sameness between the original and the copy, as they are secured by the “genes” and “technologies”. At the same time, it renders invisble heterogeneous bodies that are involved in this magical, “motherless” reproduction. As such, the dominant narrative of cloning highlights a specific technoscientific imagination of the future in which (re)production happens without involving bodies, and value grows on its own. I argue that the narrative of cloning resonates with the late capitalist (and biocapitalist) imagination of life and economy, while reiterating the gendered dichotomy of production and reproduction, mind and body, nature and culture in a novel way. I propose “care” as an important analytic that allows feminists to ask different questions about technoscience, to tell different stories about life, and further to imagine technonscience otherwise.
