FALL SEMESTER 2014PHIL-336-01 FOUCAULT
The Philosophy Department would like to inform you that places are still available in this fall’s seminar PHIL-336-01. This seminar will introduce students to the major writings of Michel Foucault, one of the most innovative and influential French philosophers in the 20th century. We will examine his groundbreaking studies on madness, on the prison system, on the complex relationship between sexuality, knowledge, and power, as well as on the nexus between biopower and (state) racism; this seminar is particularly suited for students in philosophy, political science, women, gender and sexuality, psychology, as well as for students in language and culture studies.
Instructor: Prof. Vogt Monday 6:30-9:10pm
