Biopolitical Studies Research Network
University of New South Wales
The University of New South Wales Arts and Social Sciences Biopolitical Studies Research Network brings together strengths in Contemporary Philosophy, Environmental Humanities and Social Sciences. The network’s purpose is to produce innovative research in international publications that cuts across established disciplinary frontiers. It seeks to challenge traditional dualisms, such as those between nature and culture, animal and human, organic and inorganic, immanence and transcendence in order to chart new territories of intellectual inquiry.
The Biopolitical Studies Research Network includes researchers from Philosophy, Sociology, Political Science, and Literary Studies with expertise in Social Scientific Methods and Continental European Philosophical approaches ranging from Phenomenology, Critical Theory, Poststructuralism and Deconstruction to Recognition Theory. Researchers develop and apply concepts to contemporary issues in the Humanities and Social Sciences that draw from the neurosciences, particle and quantum physics, epigenetics and theoretical biology and recent trends in ethnography and ethology.
