Department: Honors College

Research Focus: Biopolitics, Necropolitics, Neoliberalism, and Decoloniality. Necropolitics and biopolitics have often been considered separate concepts. However, I argue that these concepts are relational and complementary.

Potential Student Project:
  • Organizing a seminar on Democracy, Biopolitics, Necropolitics, and Technology in which we will invite professors from different countries to participate in our sessions.
  • Helping in researching and looking for bibliographical sources.
Attributes/skills/background sought in undergraduate:
  • Majors in social science, philosophy, or humanities
  • Knowledge in Spanish and/or French
Mentoring Plan:
  • One meeting per week.

I expect that he/she works 5 hours per week. I will guide closely to the researching task.
