BioScope Volume 8 Number 2, December 2017

We’re happy to announce the publication of BioScope Vol. 8. No. 2.

The articles featured in this issue of BioScope are interested in questions of how popular cinema, state-sponsored documentary, or sensational television news programs produce significant orientations of social relations and attitudes. The articles also implicitly suggest that we approach media as historically situated assemblages of technologies, techniques, esthetics, institutions, spaces, publics, and affects.
