The Somatechnics of Research

Guest edited by Dennis Bruining, Holly Randell-Moon, and Saartje Tack

This special issue Somatechnics: Journal of Bodies – Technologies – Power invites contributions that critically examine how research methods, methodologies, theories, practices and institutions constitute somatechnics. Somatechnics here is understood broadly as an approach the body/ technology nexus that displaces the ‘and’ in ‘bodies and technologies’ to account for the ways bodies are always already technologized. Somatechnics research has engendered a wide range of innovative and ground-breaking transdisciplinary scholarship on the body that has been particularly productive in furthering our understanding of the lived experience of various corporealities and social justice issues. This special issue asks how research and its practices engender somatechnical relations of power that constrain and enable the production of knowledge and the capacity to theorise in particular ways.

We are interested in work that:

  *   Links somatechnics to philosophies of technology in ways that disclose current research practices
  *   Explores research practices and institutions as technologies of particular kinds of ontologies and epistemologies, for instance in the context of colonising knowledges per Linda Tuhiwai Smith
  *   Reads somatechnics as a conceptual interlocutor between different theoretical and methodological approaches to research practice
  *   Discusses the materiality and embodied dimensions to research practices
  *   Connects somatechnics to theories of power and racialization in research practice
  *   Relates somatechnics to the operation of neoliberal capitalism and the moulding of bodies as receptive to neoliberal regimes in current research practice

We are also interested in work that addresses the broad theme of the somatechnics of research.
