Biographical details

Sonja van Wichelen received her PhD in Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam (2007) and held positions in the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University (2007-2009), the Pembroke Center at Brown University (2009-2010), and the Institute for Culture and Society at the University of Western Sydney (2010-2014) before joining Sydney University in 2015. Her general research interests include globalization and human rights, science and technology studies, feminist and postcolonial theory, sociology of law, religion and the body politic. Sonja is the director of the Biopolitics of Science Research Network, research leader of the BioHumanity Theme, member of the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre, and member of the Sydney Asia-Pacific Migration Centre. She is co-editor of the Palgrave MacMillan Biolegalities Book Series and on the editorial board of The Sociological Review.

Research interests

My research takes place on the cross-disciplinary node of law, life, and science in a globalizing world. Previous projects focused on cross-border reproductive technologies (including adoption and surrogacy), global migration, and transnational religion, and were spread over four fieldwork sites: the United States, the Netherlands, Indonesia, and Australia. My current research focus is on the conceptual and theoretical exploration of ‘biolegality’ and examines the constitutive relation between biology and law in the formation of knowledge and sociality.
