SLSA 2015 “After Biopolitics” CALL FOR PAPERS

12-15 November, 2015 Houston, Texas

The conference theme, “After Biopolitics,” seeks to reexamine the theoretical,cultural, social, and political underpinnings of the biopolitical paradigm, and to explore conceptual resources (both within and outside of the biopolitical paradigm) for the possibility of thinking what has been called an “affirmative” biopolitics that views the intersection of “Life” and the political as a potential space of affinity, community, and creativity, rather than the “thanatopolitics” that has dominated the biopolitical paradigm thus far.
