Clare O’Farrell on Translating Foucault at the Movies, Columbia University Press blog, September 27, 2018
Today for National Translation Month we are presenting our film fans with a guest post from Clare O’Farrell who translated Foucault at the Movies by Michel Foucault, Patrice Maniglier, and Dork Zabunyan. In this post, O’Farrell gives a personal account of the challenges and opportunities that arose from this project. Foucault at the Movies brings together all of Foucault’s commentary on film, some of it available for the first time in English, along with important contemporary analysis and further extensions of this work. It offers detailed, up-to-date commentary, inviting us to go to the movies with Foucault.
