Roundup of media discussion of Foucault’s Les Aveux de la chair (mostly French)

BHI_Foucault_Le_souci_Plat.inddSome of the media discussion of Foucault’s Les Aveux de la chair. Will add other pieces as I see them – do add comments if you know of more.

Michel Foucault, culture physique – FranceCulture podcast

Il est comment le dernier Michel Foucault? – FranceCulture podcast

Parts of these are transcribed on the webpages. The second has some clips of Foucault talking about the work.

Roudinesco 2018 - on Les Aveux de la chair.jpg

Elisabeth Roudinesco reviews the book for Le monde (requires subscription); Juliette Cerf in Télérama

News reports in The Local (in English); Huffington Postreport on the book and last weekend’s conference in Le monde (requires subscription); from Élodie Maurot in La Croix; and in The New York Times by Peter Libbey (in English, with brief quote from me).

Finally, I’ve previously shared these but thought I’d add them to this aggregated post:

Roger-Pol Droit, “Foucault, les mots et les sexes” in Les Echos

Philosophie Magazine special issue on Foucault, including an extract from Les Aveux de la chair

And my brief comments for Warwick. Full review now available in the Theory, Culture and Society blog (open access); forthcoming in the journal.

Update:

Alison Flood, “‘Key’ fourth book of Foucault’s History of Sexuality published in France“,  The Guardian, 12 February 2018.

Olivia Goldhill, “Foucault has a new book out, and it’s the key to understanding his entire work on sexuality“, Quartz, 14 February 2018

Both The Guardian and Quartz pieces include some quotes from me.
