Biolegalities

Series Editors: De Leeuw, Marc, Van Wichelen, Sonja

This interdisciplinary series on Biolegalities engages with contemporary challenges and implications of new biotechnologies and biological knowledges in the field of law. Our series aims to open up a much broader understanding of biolegality that includes a range of biotechnologies and biological knowledge, expanding into areas of immigration law, trade law, labor law, environmental law, patent law, family law, human rights law, and international law. While the growing scholarship on biopolitics has studied the ways in which such practices are entangled with certain modes of governance and neoliberal economies, their translations, deployments, and reconfigurations in the realm of law or legal practice has been relatively understudied. The main objective of this book series is to provide a venue for the study of the complex and often contested ways in which biotechnologies or biological knowledges are reworked by, with, and against legal knowledge.
