History of the Present – the Berkeley newsletter on Foucault’s work online

[Update Nov 2018 – these links appear to be dead. Please comment if they become live again or you know of another source]

History of the Present, the newsletter devoted to Foucault’s work published by Paul Rabinow and edited by him and other people at Berkeley is available online. I’d been looking for copies in libraries, and the online version took a little while to find, so I hope others will find it helpful.

History of the Present no 1– February 1985 Issue (pdf)

– Spring 1986 Issue (pdf)

– Fall 1987 Issue (pdf)

– Spring 1988 Issue (pdf)

They include translations of interviews with Foucault, at least one of which is not available elsewhere, an interview with Deleuze, reviews, pieces by researchers using Foucault’s ideas, and so on. I’m intrigued by the stage performance of History of Sexuality

These, and many other publications, are listed on the webpage of Paul Rabinow’s Anthropos Lab.

I’ve also added these to the list of uncollected notes, lectures and interviews on this site.
