The moral economy of biotechnical facility

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Early programmatic statements about the future of synthetic biology primed the figure of the transformed biologist and the invention of facilities through which that transformation could be actualized. Ten years on from those manifestos, it seems worth posing the question of what facilities have actually been put into play as part of the making of the synthetic biologist, and how these subjectivational spaces–material, digital, and conceptual–are inflecting the economies of life, labor, and power within which synthetic biology continues to be imagined and elaborated.
