The biosciences are fundamentally reshaping law and legal practice. Emerging research in postgenomics, reproductive science, neuroscience, and synthetic biology and their attending applications and technologies in society bring about paradigmatic shifts in the reorganization of legal knowledge. The Series provides a venue for emerging scholarship in the study of biolegalities: the complex and often contested ways in which biotechnologies or biological knowledges are reworked by, with, and against legal knowledge. This is an interdisciplinary terrain and the Series Editors welcome proposals from law, sociology, anthropology, political science, geography, history, philosophy, gender studies, science and technology studies.
