ROMANO HURTADO, Berenice. Between ansibles and screens: the programming of the self “En Proceso” by Andrea Chapela. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2022, vol.26, n.49, pp.101-117.  Epub Nov 30, 2022. ISSN 2077-3323.

This article reviews the narrative intersections between autofiction and science fiction in the story “En proceso” by Andrea Chapela. The construction and question about a self acquires interesting nuances when it refers to a consciousness rescued by a computer. The traditional themes of the writings of the self -memory, writing that combats oblivion, the retelling of life, truth and lies, death and immortality- are thought of within the framework of a story written in the manner of an autofiction, but in the context of a hypertechnological society that modifies the perception of the subjects as well as the relationship with the self.

Keywords : autofiction; science fiction; identity; reality; death.
