Number 22: January 2017:
Foucault and Roman Antiquity: Foucault’s Rome

Editor’s note: I have now returned to the journal, of which I was one of the co-founders, as part of an expanded editorial team. An interview with another of the three founding editors of the journal, Stuart Elden, also appears in this issue, as does a review of his latest book. The opening editorial states:

With this issue of Foucault Studies, a new and markedly expanded editorial team takes over. While Sverre Raffnsøe, Alain Beaulieu, Barbara Cruikshank, Knut Ove Eliassen, Marius GudmandHøyer, Johanna Oksala and Alan Rosenberg continue on the editorial team, Foucault Studies is delighted to welcome Thomas Götselius, Daniele Lorenzini, Hernan Camilo Pulido Martinez, Clare O’Farrell, Rodrigo Castro Orellana, Eva Bendix Petersen and Dianna Taylor as co-editors.
