Dr Kane Race

Dr Kane Race

Dr Kane Race studies social and cultural engagements with HIV/AIDS among key affected populations, particularly in the context of new biomedical developments. He has expertise in sexuality research, cultural studies and social studies of science and technology.

Kane maintains an active research profile in the areas of sexuality and queer studies, cultural studies of health and biopolitics, consumption practices, and science and technology studies, with a particular interest in how technologies of the self intersect with technologies of government to produce new subjectivities and modes of intimacy and embodiment, especially in the areas of public health and biomedicine, sexuality and new media. A second area of interest is the emergence of new modes of governmentality in relation to consumption, especially as these are being played out in disputes relating to the night-time economy. A further, longstanding interest is the politics of knowledge and the question of what different knowledge practices produce.
