Nature and the Transformation of Production,
Reproduction and Politics in the High-Tech Bioeconomy
BIOMATERIALITIES is a five-year research project focusing on the materialities of living nature and their economic valorization in the high-tech bioeconomy. The research group is composed of six doctoral and post-doctoral researchers who analyze how biophysical processes intersect with and are changing social relations pertaining to production, reproduction and politics. The research group will trace commodity networks guided by an analysis of political economy, political ecology, economics of care, feminist theory and critical geography.
