‘Before the Punitive Society: The Inquiry of Théories et institutions pénales’ – audio recording of talk to Time Served: Discipline and Punish Forty Years On conference

SE in NottinghamI recently gave the opening plenary lecture to the ‘Time Served: Discipline and Punish Forty Years On‘ conference, organised by Sophie Fuggle and held at the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham.

My talk was entitled “Before the Punitive Society: The Inquiry of Théories et institutions pénales” (abstract), and the audio recording is now available here. It’s about 45 minutes long.

I spoke about how the analysis of the 1971-72 course Théories et institutions pénales related to the ‘course summary’, to the third ‘Truth and Juridical Forms’ lecture from Rio in 1973, and Foucault’s preparatory notes for these lectures, which I have been working through in Paris. This is part of the draft of Chapter Two of the second book I’ve been writing on Foucault, The Birth of Power, hopefully out in 2017. You can read more about the progress of that book, and about the book that is due out in 2016, Foucault’s Last Decade, here.
