Foucault News

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

As the 6th edition of the Workshop on Historical Epistemology – Historical Epistemology and Epistemology of History – could not take place last spring, we have rescheduled it in a new format. We are thus very glad to invite you to the Month of Historical Epistemology! During November 2020, we will hold weekly meetings on Zoom to discuss different aspects of the relationships between historical epistemology and epistemology of history. 

Sessions will take place every Wednesday in November, from 17h to 19h (Paris time). Since Wednesday, November 11 is a holiday in France, that week’s session will be an exception and take place on Thursday, November 12, 17h-19h. 

In order to participate and receive relevant information concerning the weekly discussions and meeting links, please register at the following link: https://forms.gle/bzTgrrzu5XGkUaND7
