New to the Community
I'm new to the community! However I'm fascinated and would love to know more about it's conception and objectives (if there are unified shared objectives...by no means does there have to be). I'm currently reading Foucault's writing on Bio-power and I'm wondering to what extent has his writing influenced people here? If he even has?
I should say before hand, that I am a Masters student studying Medical Anthropology in London. My interests are primarily in the democratisation of science and the extraordinary forms in which people are challenging elitism in the bio-industries.
I do not want to overstep here or proceed to look into a community, without a general acceptance of my being here beforehand. While I understand it is hard to know 100% online that this is acceptable, for clarity I would like to make my presence known, say a quick hello and hopefully engage in interesting conversation.
