After presenting at the AAG conference in New York, Dr JD Dewsbury and human geography PhD students Stacey Smith, Georgie Urry, Andrew Lapworth, Tom Roberts and Joanna Mann will work with geographer Keith Woodward and his students at the University of Madison-Wisconsin to design a new international course to be called 'Affect and Biopolitics'.
Themes that will be covered include new materialist philosophy, political ontology, the impact of biotechnologies, technoscience and the geographies of affect. This is a great opportunity for all involved and for the PhD students to not only present their research to an international university but to create new partnerships with postgraduate students in Madison.
The opportunity for this collaboration has been funded by the British Council following a conference that took place in Bristol last September called 'Political events and spaces of affect', organised by Dr JD Dewsbury and Dr Maria Fannin.
