I’ve changed the look and theme of Foucault News. My last design was starting to show its age! The banner picture is of two chimera on the roof of Notre Dame – looking out pensively over Foucault’s city. I found the image here
Due to extreme work overload at this end (see any number of articles on the contemporary neoliberal university!) I have got behind with my updates to Foucault News. To those of you who have sent me news recently, please rest assured that it will be appearing here soon!
Editor: To provide extra material for my Master of Education coursework students, I will be posting up quite a bit of material in the education area over the next month. These posts will be scheduled at a different time of day from other posts. The Foucault and education posts will all be tagged in the education category on the blog.
As always, please send on any Foucault related news from any arena for posting on Foucault News.
Posts will be intermittent through the month of January. I will still post up any news that is sent on to me directly.
Note from the editor
I will be taking a break from Foucault News for about a month while I attend the Foucault @ 90 conference in Scotland and take a short holiday. Posts will be sporadic until mid to late July.
You might be interested to know that the volume of Foucault related activity is always increasing and that there is considerably more material now than when I initially started this blog in September 2010. I currently already have quite a large backlog of material ready to post when I return.
Please don’t hesitate to send news on to me in the meantime. I will post it up as I can. Could I also take the opportunity to ask you to send me messages to my email address rather than via Facebook as I tend not to check Facebook as often.
This is a Google ngram which even if it only measures up to 2008, demonstrates the rate of citation of Foucault’s work against a number of other thinkers who are popular in the discipline of education.
Note from Editor: I often come across interesting material on Foucault that has been around for some time, that either predates this blog or that I have missed.
I have decided, therefore, to start a new category on Foucault News for these items. Postings of this material will be occasional, clearly labelled ‘Archive’ and will be posted at a different time of day from my normal news posts.
