Class Number & Section Details
This course explores the philosophical concept of biopolitics and its diverse translations and/or adaptations across multiple disciplines and across the globe. We will trace the concept of biopolitics and its attendant notions—Sovereignty, Governmentality, Neoliberalism— as they emerge in the work of Michel Foucault. Relatedly, we will analyze the multiple disciplinary and geographical directions in which the concepts have travelled. Throughout the semester, we shall also examine negative/ affirmative, biopolitics, necropolitics, digital biopolitics, and postcoloniality, race, gender, and sexuality and their intersection with biopolitics.
