‘Foucault in Ireland’ – 24 March 2017, Royal Irish Academy, Dublin


On 23 March I’ll be visiting National University of Ireland Maynooth to give a seminar. The following day I’ll be one of the participants in a symposium at the Royal Irish Academy – ‘Foucault and Ireland’.

This one-day symposium reviews the engagement of Irish Studies with the work of Michel Foucault. It begins with a roundtable on the recent work of Stuart Elden: Foucault’s last decade (Polity 2016), Foucault: the birth of power (Polity 2017). This is followed by papers on Foucault’s influence in various areas of Irish academic study including: criminology, literary criticism, historical geography, international relations, philosophy, sociology, and others.

If you are engaging with any of the ideas of Michel Foucault in your research and you would like to give a brief presentation of your work as part of the one-day symposium Foucault in Ireland, Royal Irish Academy, Friday 24 March 2017, then please contact Prof. Gerry Kearns, gerry.kearns@nuim.ie

The event is free, but pre-registration is required. More details here.
