BioMaterialities – Nature and the Transformation of Production, Reproduction and Politics in the High-Tech Bioeconomy

BioMaterialities is a five-year long research project focusing on the materialities of living nature and their economic valuation in the High-Tech Bioeconomy. The research group is composed of six doctoral and post-doctoral researchers who analyse how biophysical processes intersect with and are changing social relations pertaining to production, reproduction and politics. The research group will trace commodity networks, among others with a focus on the three cross-cutting topics sustainability, political participation and inequality. The research is guided by an analysis of political economy, political ecology, economics of care, feminist theory and critical geography.
