Stuart J. Murray is Professor and Canada Research Chair in Rhetoric and Ethics in the Department of English Language and Literature and the Department of Health Sciences at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. His work is concerned with the constitution of human subjectivity and the links between the rhetorics and ethics of “life,” in the multiple ways in which this term is mobilized biopolitically in discourses on health, identity, and across digital media. He is currently completing a book-length project on the rhetorical dimensions of biopolitics and ethics after Foucault, titled, The Living From The Dead: Disaffirming Biopolitics.

In 2014 he was elected to the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada.
