Foucault News

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

Editor: I’ve made a few changes and additions to Foucault News. I have merged my old site with Foucault News and have also transferred the domain name. Henceforth, the url for the Foucault News site will be The domain name of will continue to work however and links with that address will all redirect to this site.

I have brought a number of (updated) pages across from my old website. You can find a list of these pages below and also in the top and bottom menu bars under ‘Foucault Resources’. If there is information missing which you would like to see on the resource pages, please email me or leave a comment in the comments boxes on the relevant pages.

My original Foucault site went online on January 1997, and was initially used to advertise an edited volume of papers from a conference I ran in 1994 on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Foucault: The Legacy (Brisbane: QUT, 1997). See here, courtesy of the wayback machine what my website looked like in 1998, complete with dire amateur retro design. The site was initially coded by hand in html (a slow painstaking process!) before the advent of sophisticated web design software.

I subsequently expanded the site and here is a ‘redesigned’ version in 2000 and then its final form (done in 2007) as it appeared after its last update in July 2013.
