Summary This paper focuses on the construction of my post-operatively scarred body as a mine site, my experiences with reconstructively normalizing its appearance as a cyborg, and the implications for my work as an environmental educator  interested in how the body of a theorist is presented within theoretical spaces. The paper is not a victim's story as such, but rather a response to the  hypothesis that illness is a call for stories, that the body needs a voice that disease and illness take away. It relates Donna Haraway's notions of the cyborg and other feminist poststructuralist work to both my living body and the body of my curriculum work in environmental education.
