Foucault News

News and resources on French thinker Michel Foucault (1926-1984)

Applications are now open for the July intake of the MA in Continental Philosophy at Western Sydney University.

Our MA is an 18-month program that is designed primarily as a degree program for those excellent and promising students who would like to continue in a doctoral program. To that end, we will actively support students who wish to continue their studies in a doctoral program elsewhere.

The MA is housed in the Philosophy Research Initiative of Western Sydney University, which is an active group of philosophers and graduate students who also share in the lively intellectual and cultural life of other universities and of Sydney, Australia.

We have two stipends ($2000) to support international students and we also have professional travel funding ($2000) available to all MA students. Details can be found here:

Please do not hesitate to direct any queries to either of us directly or to the departmental email address

Best regards,
Dennis Schmidt (Chair of Philosophy)
Dimitris Vardoulakis (Director of Graduate Studies)
