Hot off the press – Foucault’s Théories et institutions pénales is published. This is the last Collège de France course to appear, though it is the second in sequence, from 1971-72. Bernard E. Harcourt edited the text, it comes with a ‘Situation du cours’ by him and François Ewald, and some additional material: the first French translation of an English summary of a lecture Foucault gave in Minnesota in 1972, “Cérémonie, théâtre et politique au XVIIe siècle”; a letter from Étienne Balibar to Harcourt; and an essay on Foucault and historians by Claude Olivier Doran.
Many thanks to Bernard for giving me this copy – and for previously sharing an early version of the transcription.
