Max Hancock | 2022

Visiting June - August 2022

Max Hancock is a graduate student at the University of Chicago's Committee on International Relations.

His training is in IR, and current research focuses on topics in intellectual history, political economy, world systems, and the history of science. Currently Max is most interested in hybrids, human-animal relations, and nature-society dichotomies in the history of global capitalism. He is currently working on an article-length piece on biological computers and the making of world markets in the 1960s.

While in Cambridge, Max will be working on a paper revolving around several mid-century thinkers and actors and their work on biological computing. Max is working to situate his investigation at the point where the history of human knowledges, nonhuman intelligence, world systems, and economic thought collide.

More information about this will be made available soon.
