Biocapitalism, an economic model built on finding and creating new commodities from existing forms of life, has fundamentally changed how we understand the boundaries between nature and culture and between human and nonhuman entities. How should educators, students, and communities respond to such developments as the first genetically engineered animal made for human consumption, powerful new psychotropic drugs designed to target behavioral disorders, genetic explanations of learning and intelligence, and new methods of educational assessment interested in determining the added value of students and teachers in the classroom? Education in the Age of Biocapitalism is the first book to not only chart how education should respond to the historic challenges of living in a biocapitalist society, but also to examine how human capital understandings of education are co-evolving with biocapitalism. Winner of the AESA Critic's Choice Book Award 2013
