I have to write a four-to-five page summary and discussion leadin of the readings for this week, which include:
  • Stefan Helmreich, "Species of Biocapital"
  • Michel Foucault, "Right of Death and Power over Life"
  • Kaushik Sunder Rajan, Biocapital: The Constitution of Postgenomic Life (chapters 0,1, 2, 5)
These notes will come from all of those texts and are meant primarily for me to distill into this short paper. If it gets really long (or I don't finish reading it all today) there maywill be a part 2 later. As always, feel free to read along and I hope they are interesting, but these are 90% for my own reference.notes )

Abstract: Core idea of this paper is that firearms diffusion into and through the Gonarezhou area of South Eastern Zimbabwe has been going on since 1500, and seeks to describe the "deep involvement of African users of firearms in the diffusion process" despite "essentially negative impact." (201)
Human beings could not inflict this harm without technology. )
