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.

Special Issue: Bioethics, Biopolitics and Selfhood, (2016) European Journal of Cultural Studies, 19 (1)

McCormack, D., Salmenniemi, S.
The biopolitics of precarity and the self
(2016) European Journal of Cultural Studies, 19 (1), pp. 3-15.

DOI: 10.1177/1367549415585559

Abstract
This Special Issue explores the biopolitics of precarity and the self. In so doing, its aim is to critically examine the changing landscape of technologies of the self and techniques of domination in late capitalism. It brings Foucault’s work on biopolitics into conversation with recent feminist, Marxist, postcolonial, disability and queer scholarship on precarity. In a feminist tradition of thinking through relationality and ethics, this Special Issue engages with those moments when technologies of regulation, surveillance and normalization do not quite work. ‘The Biopolitics of Precarity and the Self’ analyzes recent debates on precarity and precariousness in relation to migration and labour, health and illness, and the formation of the self and collectivities. It identifies temporality and care of both the self and others as key dimensions of precarity and explores how biopolitical structures of neoliberal capitalism institutionalize precarity that exacerbates existing global and local inequalities. We therefore raise questions around what it means to live, endure, survive and make life and labour possible without doing harm to the self or others. In this sense, this Special Issue brings to the fore the temporalities, politics and ethics of what is not always recognized in biomedical practices, labour migrations, media representations, labour of the self and everyday agency. © 2015, © The Author(s) 2015.
