Farge and Foucault, Disorderly Families reviewed in the TLS (and discussed in podcast)

imageArlette Farge and Michel Foucault, Disorderly Families: Infamous letters from the Bastille archives (edited by Nancy Luxon, translated by Thomas Scott-Railton) reviewed in the TLS: ‘Would you mind imprisoning my wife?‘ by Biancamaria Fontana.

Update: it is also discussed in this TLS podcast.

As I’ve mentioned here before, there is a companion book of essays edited by Nancy Luxon, forthcoming from University of Minnesota Press. I have a piece in that collection (on urban spaces), and Nancy and I will be speaking about this work at the Institute of Historical Studies in London on June 16. More details when available.
