Dear CSAA Colleagues,

Apologies for the humble-brag, I would like to announce the publication of an edited collection from Ryan Tippet and myself entitled, Security, Race, Biopower: Essays on Technologies and Corporeality. The book contains contributions based on presentations at the first Space, Race, Bodies conference. More information about the book is available at the publisher's site here:
http://www.palgrave.com/us/book/9781137554079#aboutBook and I've attached flyers which offer a discount (the full Introduction is available on google books). I'm currently attending the Crossroads conference, so if you'd like a hard copy of the flyer or want to discuss the book, please flag me down!

Here's an overview of the book:

This book explores how technologies of media, medicine, law and governance enable and constrain the mobility of bodies within geographies of space and race. Each chapter describes and critiques the ways in which contemporary technologies produce citizens according to their statistical risk or value in an atmosphere of generalised security, both in relation to categories of race, and within the new possibilities for locating and managing bodies in space. The topics covered include: drone warfare, the global distribution of HIV-prevention drugs, racial profiling in airports, Indigenous sovereignty, consumer lifestyle apps and their ecological and labour costs, and anti-aging therapies.

The full table of contents are listed below. I realise the book is a bit pricey so if any students are keen to read a chapter, get in touch and I'll see if I can pass along a pdf version.

Kind regards,

Holly Randell-Moon and Ryan Tippet
