Advances in our ability to make circulate, to intervene and to enhance
biological functions have meant that the realm of culture now involves the
transformation and commodification of 'nature' at its most elemental and
molecular levels. Thisworkshop interrogates changing understandings of
'life', the human, and the natural in the context of these and related
developments in biotechnology, biopolitics and bio-capital.
