Foucault News

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

Progressive Geographies


Bruno Latour’s Où atterrir?, Mariana Valverde’s study of Michel Foucault, now in paperback, and Ernst Kantorowicz, Oeuvres – which i mainly got for the biography by Alain Boureau. Also in the pile is a second-hand copy of Foucault’s L’ordre du discours – and the Collège de France publication of that lecture. I had no idea that the latter actually existed until recently, when I was alerted to differences between the versions. The original is very hard to find. I plan to make a systematic comparison of the two texts – which is why I’ve bought a copy of the Gallimard version to mark up. When I do, I’ll post about it here – previous such textual comparisons can be found here.

  1. Well as usually I’m in a one way power discourse with literature🧐wish me luck 🤗

  2. I think Foucault would have liked this 📖 for a critical discourse on a nodal point of power within social discourse on Higher Ed. 👩‍🦳
