Manuela Perrotta

I am Principal Investigator for this project and currently a lecturer in Technology and Organisation. I have spent the last ten years investigating the relations between new technology and knowing in biomedical organisations. With this project, I want to explore how biomedical imaging technologies and the development of professional and lay visions are involved in changing conceptions of the body. I believe this is a prime example of the mutual influence between organisations and society.

I hold a Bachelor Degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Bologna (Italy) and a Master of Arts in Science and Technology Studies from York University (Toronto, Canada). My research interests focus on biomedicalization and medical interventions on dissident human bodies.

I am a postdoctoral researcher for the project “Remaking the Human Body”. I hold a Ph.D. in social anthropology from the EHESS (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales) in Paris. My main research interest deals with the constitution of personhood in the process of engendering, focusing on biotechnologies and embryo selection.
