The lex of somatechnics

Joseph Pugliese, Maria Giannacopoulos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Situated in a biopolitical environment generating laws invested with the capillary power to reach into the most intimate recesses of the body, the essays collected in this edition of the Griffith Law Review foreground the inextricability of lex, soma and techne, so as to map the contemporary somatechnics of law — that is, the complex ways in which bodies both reproduce and transform law.
