What is Biopolitics?

Biopolitics is an educational website dedicated to the discussion of the interaction of medicine and politics. Biopolitics’ instructional modules feature video dialogues and “annotations” by leading scholars about timely topics with complicated histories. In addition to focusing on many issues in which the relationship between medicine and politics seems self-evident (such as health reform, abortion, euthanasia, and the “War on Drugsā€), we may also cover topics such as the medical dimensions of warfare, or, alternatively, the political aspects of HIV/AIDS or even the common cold.


We are open to queries from scholars in a variety of fields. See our submissions page for information about how to contribute.
