I was pleased to be asked to give one of the British Academy 10-Minute Talks on The Early Foucault (Polity, 2021)
The world’s leading professors explain the latest thinking in the humanities and social sciences in just 10 minutes.
In this talk Stuart Elden discusses his new book, The Early Foucault and the research he did on the first period of Michel Foucault’s career. In particular, he highlights what Foucault did before the History of Madness in 1961 and how he came to write that book as well as the way newly available archival materials help to make sense of the period.
His book, The Early Foucault, was published in June 2021.
Speaker: Professor Stuart Elden FBA, Professor of Political Theory and Geography, University of Warwick
