Most of the responses have so far picked up on the hard sciences bit, but I
would be interested in the ideas you have on HIV/AIDS, as my initial PhD
project proposed to do this (not so much on the biomedical, but more of the
social aspects). The PhD I have now nearly finished is entirely theoretical,
but I am still thinking of doing the practical analysis at some point.

Hopefully you will be able to provide a summary of some of your ideas.

Best wishes

Subject: Biomedical discoursive and non-discoursive practices around AIDS

I am working with a Foucauldian framework on biomedical dicourses
around HIV/AIDS. My aim is to demonstrate, that a Foucauldian
analysis is not only functioning in the field of human sciences, but
also in the field of "hard sciences". Do anyone know something about
this? Is anyone of you intersted to start a discussion about Foucault
and natural sciences?
