Technoscience Rent

Higher seminar

Kean Birch from Innovation Policy Lab, University of Toronto is visiting the Theory of Science and Science and Technology Studies Seminar. He will be giving av talk at the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science.

The topic of Kean Birch talk is: Political-economic platforms and rentiership in the bio-economy.

The articulation of capital and life, or bio-economy, has been theorized in many ways in recent years; examples include biovalue, biocapital, surplus life, etc. What this proliferation of bio-concepts illustrates is the fetishization of the biological and the technoscientific at the expense of the political-economic. While there is value in this theoretical work, it leaves a major gap in our understandings of the bio-economy.
