Watch Professor Tania Li's keynote lecture 'To Make Live or Let Die'

In this keynote lecture, given as part of CCIG Forum 10, Professor Tania Li discusses the productive ways in which the notion of biopolitics (as the governance of life itself) can be positively utilised to enhance and sustain the lives of populations in the developing world.

Drawing upon a number of case studies from an Indian context, Professor Li analyses the conditions of possibility for such interventions and how they become articulated and 'assembled'.  Rather than positing a 'top down' view of power as the capacity of a single actor (such as the state), she shows how intervention can emerge from distributed and disperate actors and how these actors can bring about powerful social change.

Following the keynote are responses from Jessica Pykett, from Aberystwyth University and John Clarke from the Open University.
