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

Lotier, Kristopher M. “On Not Following Freire Foucault and the Critique of Human Capital.” Pedagogy 17, no. 2 (2017): 151-175.

Abstract:
Rather than ignoring or criticizing students’ vocational concerns, critical pedagogy can work on, in, and through them, thereby gaining persuasive credibility and simultaneously extending Paulo Freire’s educational project. Following Freire’s command to “rediscover power,” this article employs Michel Foucault’s analysis of neoliberal biopolitics to imagine possibilities for both personal and systemic transformation.
