    Abstract

    This chapter examines the dispersed power relations and cultural-technical alliances that characterize the geneticization of contemporary science and social life. Illustrated with examples from our multi-site fieldwork on genetic knowledge production, our analysis draws on insights from science studies, feminist scholarship and queer theory, disability studies, and ongoing discussions of emergent forms of citizenship. Within a technically mediated public sphere, identities and alliances are transformed, calling into question the distinction between the subjects and objects of scientific inquiry.
