The Microbial State

Stefanie R. Fishel

University of Minnesota Press

The materiality of the body is introduced as a way to provide methodological insight into both the way the body works, and by analogy how society works. This includes an expansion and redefinition of the political lexicon of body politics, and an attempt to tie self-interest to supporting an enriched and complex idea of community.

Keywords:   body politic, biopolitics, bacteria, social theory, microbes, biome, state security, ecology
