Posts on Foucault and education

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.

Foucault News taking a short break (2016)

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.

New ‘archive’ category on Foucault News

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.
