Biography

Professor Joseph Pugliese, Department of Media, Music, Communication and Cultural Studies, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.

KEY RESEARCH AREAS: Social justice, understood in the most expansive sense so that it includes the more-than-human world, is the superordinate term that encompasses the entirety of my research. Under this meta-rubric, my key fields of research are: colonialism and decoloniality; state violence, war and carcerality; race, whiteness and ethnicity; more-than-human ecologies; law, culture and the humanities; refugees and asylum seekers; bodies, science and technologies; visual culture; and migration and diaspora.

Selected publications include the edited collection TransMediterranean: Diasporas, Histories, Geopolitical Spaces (Peter Lang, 2010) and the monograph Biometrics: Bodies, Technologies, Biopolitics (Routledge, 2010) which was short-listed for the international Surveillance Studies Book Prize. His monograph State Violence and the Execution of Law: Biopolitical Caesurae of Torture, Black Sites, Drones (Routledge, 2013) was nominated for the UK’s Hart Socio-Legal Book Prize 2013, the US’s Law and Society Association Herbert Jacob Book Prize 2013, was awarded the MQ Faculty of Arts Research Excellence Award 2013 and it received High Commendation in the MQ Research Excellence Awards 2014 and 2015.  With Professor Suvendrini Perera, he is a founding member of Researchers Against Pacific Black Sites and a Chief Investigator on the ARC-funded transnational project, Deathscapes, on racialized state violence in settler societies: https://www.deathscapes.org/. Deathscapes was shorlisted for the Council of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Distinctive Work Prize 2019. His forthcoming book is Biopolitics of the More-Than-Human: Forensic Ecologies of Violence (Duke University Press).
