Biopolitics and Democracy
Biopolitics & Democracy explores the political tensions we experience in these challenging times of pandemic. Our aim is to raise awareness of the biopolitical dimensions of the ways in which states and society are dealing with the current global health crisis, and to understand the changes that the pandemic has brought upon our forms of life. We’d also like to propose a collective, critical exercise of political imagination about possible futures after the pandemic.
