Springer acquire Palgrave, and future Foucault translations

Springer have acquired Palgrave as part of a merger with Macmillan – details here. Palgrave publish the translations of Foucault’s Collège de France lectures. Graham Burchell tells me that Subjectivity and Truth has only just gone into production, as result of changes at the press, despite the translation having been done for a while, so it may not be out for some time. This will be the last translated by Graham – he has done eleven of Foucault’s courses, plus other materials in the last few years. It’s a really significant achievement and Anglophone Foucault scholarship owes him a considerable debt. Penal Theories and Institutions will follow, but no date is yet known at this stage.

Update: I now understand that Graham Burchell is translating Penal Theories and Institutions. This is very good news.

    This is incredibly sad. Graham’s rendition of Foucault’s style was always very clear and enjoyable for me. A part of me had hoped perhaps he would translate some of the original books. But eleven books is enough. Too bad we have to wait for Subjectivity and Truth and Penal Theories and Institutions. He will be missed.
