Over at Foucault News, Clare has the details of a very interesting conference coming up in London.
THE FOUCAULT EFFECT 1991-2011
A Conference at Birkbeck, University of London:
Date: Friday 3 – Saturday 4 June 2011
Venue: Clore Lecture Theatre, Clore Management Centre, Birkbeck
Participants: Fabienne Brion, Graham Burchell, Daniel Defert, Peter Fitzpatrick, Ben Golder, Colin Gordon, Patrick Hanafin, Bernard Harcourt, Peter Miller, Carolina Olarte, Giovanna Procacci, Paul Patton, Jonathan Simon.
More details here. It’s hard to think of another edited book, in areas I work in, that has had the same impact as The Foucault Effect. A great lineup, with many of the original contributors. Should be good.
