Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
This graduate course aims at fostering students’ ability to think critically about the present implications of biological citizenship and forms of biopower; the course will provide essential critical and methodological apparatus for analyzing the neoliberal forms of biopolitics and specifically for analysis of its gendering, disabling and racialising effects.
The backbone of the course is discussion of theoretical literature from various fields (cultural studies, history, sociology, anthropology and ethnology etc.). Nonetheless, we will also work with film(s), media representations and other material. The respective seminar sessions will be devoted to the discussion of the compulsory readings. Each text will be briefly introduced by a presenter(s) who will also prepare and lead the in-class discussion. The course will meet bi-weekly and each session will be based on 2-3 reading/study materials.
The required reading list as well as list of recommended literature will be presented at the Vorbesprechung.
