Symposium Revisiting/Revising Foucault: The Latest Publications
12 December 2019 @ 13:00 - 16:30
The recent changes surrounding the Michel Foucault Archives have led to a flurry of new posthumous publications. The most important among these is undoubtedly Les aveux de la chair (The Confessions of the Flesh), the fourth volume of the History of Sexuality; but various other texts of interests have also been published, or will be published soon. As none of these texts are as of yet available in Dutch, English or other languages, the present workshop presents a preliminary stocktaking of these recent works, and of their possible implications for our view of Foucault’s writings as a whole.
13.15-13.35 Michiel Leezenberg, Foucault’s 1960s Lectures on Sexuality : Deux cours inédits de Michel Foucault sur la sexualité (2018)
13.45-14.05 Waldo Heugebaert, Les aveux de la chair (2018): a very short introduction
14.05-14.25 Steven Dorrestijn, The Confessions of the Flesh finally published: A project with breaks and loose ends
14.45-15.00 Coffee break
15.00-15.20 Guilel Treiber, Back to Madness, the return to the early Foucault and future publications
15.30-15.50 Aukje van Rooden, Some remarks on Folie, langage, littérature (2019)
16.00-16.15 Conclusion and further plans
