My research lies at the intersection of Using an interdisciplinary perspective informed by cultural studies, science and technology studies (STS), postcolonial studies, and critical race theory.
Book Project: “Recalibrating Biopolitics”
In this project, I argue that the slippage between biology and politics at the end of the Nineteenth Century produced bioinsecurity as a perceived threat to personal and national health and security. I historicize and critique what I call “the bioinsecurity matrix,” a context wherein biological and political insecurity is produced (or threatened). This book project intervenes in critical theory by putting both pre- and post-Foucauldian biopolitical discourse in dialog with theories of decolonial studies, critical race, sex, and gender studies, and disability studies.
