Nicolás Muñoz-Saldaña

Sociologist from the Universidad de Concepción, Chile (UdeC).  He works specially in Biopolitics of the life forms and everyday life through a deconstructive sociology, in which its limits with anthropology, semiotics, social psychology and political philosophy blur.  He has put his attention in the militant research about the discoursive-practices of the non-traditional-left, and his main thesis is the hybridization between the “Militant Alienation”, “Freedom” and the “Prefigurative Politics”.  The latter has been developed thanks to his participation in social movements and political organizations, plus his analitcal-practical lecture of authors such as Hardt & Negri, Foucault, Deleuze & Guattari, Graeber and others.  Today he is working in the consolidation of the autonomous collective of militant research “Nodo Biopolítica Experimental” which functions in the margins of the UdeC, attempting to be a transdisciplinary project, of which its principal objective is to unveil microfascisms and to combat Power.  Nowadays he organizes with his Nodo colleagues a research about the potentiality of biopolitization of the demands of the secondary students movement.  He also works in the FONDECYT 11110020 project, lead by Dr. Beatriz Cid Aguayo, about agroecology and organic certification, contributing to the study of other posible economic and ecological forms.  He has participated in different congresses, such as ALAS and the IV Coloquio Latinoamericano de Biopolítica (Bogotá Colombia), where he has presented his research and stressed the practical and militant importance of social research.
