The intersection between the spaces of embodiment and the spaces of technoscience is a rich arena for historical and contemporary research interested in the ways bodies are produced by, but also produce, the spaces and practices of technoscience. A focus on embodiment raises questions about the role of place in knowing and constituting bodies - and thus to questions of the identity and agency of bodies - and the relations between different bodies in different spaces - and thus to questions of difference and justice, which are of particular interest to critical science scholars and geographers.
