Foucault’s 1982 lectures in Toronto and Kingston – were you there? A request for help

In June 1982 Foucault gave a sequence of lectures in Toronto. At the end of June he gave a guest lecture at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, adapting one of the Toronto lectures for that audience. These lectures are being prepared for publication, and the editors would like to hear from people who attended, know someone who attended, or who have other information about the events.

There are transcripts of the lectures in archives in Berkeley and Caen, but these are incomplete and there is conflicting information about what, exactly, Foucault said there and what was said elsewhere when similar lectures were delivered. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you can help, please either comment here, or contact Clive Thompson directly.
