My paper “The Geopolitics of Boko Haram and Nigeria’s ‘War on Terror'” is now forthcoming in The Geographical Journal. Many thanks to the editor Klaus Dodds for encouraging its submission and overseeing the referee process. Two helpful referee reports improved the paper considerably.
While undertaking the research that went into this article I produced an annotated bibliography of writings on Boko Haram, which can be found here.
Some of Foucault’s collaborative projects are well-known – the I, Pierre Rivière collection; the Herculine Barbin memoir; Le désordre des familles with Arlette Farge; and the posthumous Technologies of the Self volume from the seminar at the University of Vermont.
On a dedicated page on this site I have listed the bibliographic details of other collaborative projects Foucault was involved with – either as contributor, research team leader or enabler. Comments, corrections or additions welcome.
Just finished, and survived, the ‘author meets critics’ session on The Birth of Territory at the Royal Geographical Society annual conference. Some very thoughtful and generous engagements and critiques from Stephen Legg, Briony McDonagh, Michael Heffernan, and James Sidaway. Saskia Sassen unfortunately was not able to be there. I tried to address their comments and some very good questions from the floor in my responses, though much more could be said.
Lots to think about – for the moment I’m grateful it happened and pleased it is over. Thanks to Steve for organising, the co-panelists for their reading and engagement, and the great audience turnout – the room was packed.
These tips from The Guardian are good, and many apply to writing books too.
