Risk, Embodiment and Health Technologies

A One day workshop hosted by Biosocialities, Health and Citizenship RRG and the SMS network

The Biosocialities, Health and Citizenship reading and research group utilizes theoretical and empirically informed discussions of ‘biosociality’ (Rabinow 1996, Rose and Novas 2001, Gibbon and Novas 2008, Nugyen 2007, Petryna 2002 ) as a starting point for critical engagement with questions around the global expansion of a range of medical technologies and questions of citizenship. We explore how, and to what extent, different technologies and forms of medical intervention become grafted onto, or informed by, articulations of citizenship and what the scope (and limits) are of these theoretical orientations for understandings the relationship between medical technology and identity in a variety of diverse cultural contexts.
