1. Beyond Biopolitics: Papers from the Society for Biopolitical Futures

Convenor: Cary Wolfe, Bruce and Elizabeth Dunlevie Professor of English, Founding Director, 3CT: Center for Critical and Cultural Theory, Rice University

On April 5 and 6, 2013 a group of scholars met at the Syracuse University Humanities Center for the inaugural meeting of The Society for Biopolitical Futures, supported by both the Center and by the Central New York Humanities Corridor project of the Mellon Foundation. In the words of the Center’s Founding Director, Gregg Lambert, the Society is loosely modeled “on the establishment and activities of the College of Sociology between 1937-1939. The College took as its `precise object of contemplative activity,’ according to the collective statement by its members `the name of Sacred Sociology, implying the study of all manifestations of social existence where the active presence of the sacred is clear. It intends to establish in this way the points of coincidence between the fundamental obsessive tendencies of individual psychology and the principle structures that govern social organization and are in command of its revolutions.’  Today, if there is any name that could serve to replace the sociological and anthropological notion of the `sacred,’ it is the current names of `bio-power’ and the `bio-political.’  This association has both interesting and problematic consequences, which will be the subject of the Society’s collective research. As an analytical or theoretical term, strictly speaking, the concept of bio-power has presented the same problems of definition, clarification of the social relations of power, which is caused by a `quasi-mythic’ or `epochal’ significance attached to the primary term of analysis.” This stream of sessions presents work that has evolved out of the initial meeting of the Society for Biopolitical Futures and concludes with a roundtable discussion by Society presenters on the present state of biopolitical thought and its possible futures.
