Étienne Balibar discusses Foucault’s La société punitive and his relation to Marx, with a response from Judith Butler. Audio files available here, via Multipliciudades.
For his lecture “Foucault and Marx: A Disjunctive Synthesis?”, Étienne Balibar discusses connections and disjunctions between Michel Foucault and Karl Marx, using Foucault’s 1972 Collège de France lectures on La société punitive as an alternative lens for the question of “reproduction” and its relationship to class struggles. With Foucault and Marx as a starting point for a new confrontation, he also reconsiders the idea of “communism” today. Response by Judith Butler, Professor of Comparative Literature, UC Berkeley.

Are this discussion going to be published? It seems a good idea.
Not sure – I guess contact the organisers?
