The Biopolitics: Medicine, Technoscience, and Health in the Twenty-First Century Series examines the intersection of various practices of medicine and technoscience with human bodies and lives through an interdisciplinary perspective, focusing in particular on the ways in which the practices of medical, technological, and scientific institutions function in the modern world. The series also seeks to understand how society and culture foster the new developments in these fields that “work on” human bodies.

The editors welcome submissions from scholars in medical sociology, medical anthropology, science and technology studies, bioethics, gender and sexuality studies, disability studies, and other interdisciplinary fields, and especially seek projects that offer new theoretical insights about biopolitics, analyze health-related topics in fresh ways, or take up an intellectual problem in relation to biopolitics.
