Biosocialities, Genetics and the Social Sciences explores the social, cultural and economic transformations that result from innovations in genomic knowledge and technology.This pioneering collection uses Paul Rabinow's concept of biosociality to chart the shifts in social relations and ideas about nature, biology and identity brought about by developments in biomedicine. Based on new empirical research, it contains chapters on genomic research into embryonic stem cell therapy, breast cancer, autism, Parkinson's and IVF treatment, as well as on the expectations and education surrounding genomic research. It covers four main themes:novel modes of identity and identification, such as genetic citizenshipthe role of institutions, ranging from disease advocacy organizations and voluntary organizations to the statethe production of biological knowledge, novel life-forms, and technologiesthe generation of wealth and commercial interests in biology. Including an afterword by Paul Rabinow and case studies on the UK, US, Canada, Germany, India and Israel, this book is key reading for students and researchers of the new genetics and the social sciences - particularly medical sociologists, medical anthropologists and those involved with science and technology studies.
