Foucault and the Groupe Information Santé – a bibliography

Foucault’s involvement with the Groupe d’Information sur les prisons is fairly well-known, with important collections of documentary material published in French, a forthcoming English translation of material, and a growing secondary literature in French and English. His involvement with the Groupe Information Santé (GIS) – while not nearly as extensive – is much less examined. Their importance of course goes beyond Foucault’s role.

I’ve compiled a bibliography of the group for this site, including an initial manifesto where Foucault is the only named author; the report/bulletins of the group; and then specific pieces relating to the abortion-rights struggle and the Jean Carpentier case.

I discuss Foucault’s involvement with the GIP and GIS in Foucault: The Birth of Power, Chapters Five and Six; and said a bit about the GIS in my recent talk to UCL’s Geography department – audio recording here.

For Foucault’s academic collaborative projects, see the bibliography here; and further resources on Foucault – lists/bibliographies, links, textual comparisons and some short translations – are here.
