Taking inspiration from the works of Gilles Deleuze/Felix Guattari, Dr. Mizanur Rahaman’s doctoral research at Kent examined how the bioeconomy operates as a ‘desiring-machine’; and how law, specifically intellectual property and biodiversity laws, mediates such operation in a global context. He has received several scholarships, awards and grants, which include Kent Law School Doctoral Scholarship and Teaching Assistantship (2008-2011), Modern Law Review Doctoral Scholarship (2010), Transnational Law Institute Summer School Fellowship at King’s College London (2015), and workshop participation grant by Forum Transregionale Studien, Berlin (2017). He was managing editor of the Journal of Information, Law and Technology(now European Journal of Law & Technology), an e-journal published by the School of Law, University of Warwick. Besides presenting his research at a number of international conferences and workshops, he has written for Social & Legal Studies, Social Studies of Science, and Science as Culture. His research interests fall broadly in the area of intellectual property law, spatiality of law, transnational legal theory, law and the bioeconomy, humanitarian (non-)intervention, post-conflict justice, law and development, law and anthropology, and law and social theory. At present, he is working on a number of manuscripts.
