The foucaultblog publishes featured papers as well as special issues presenting research about, with, beyond, and along the lines of the French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault (1926–1984). Possible subjects might include:

  • research about Foucault's thought in the sense of its interpretation, historicization, and contextualization (e.g., structuralism and post-structuralism, Cold War, May 68, hippie and counter-culture movement);
  • research using Foucauldian concepts and methods (archaeology and genealogy, discourse and dispositive, heterotopia, biopower, parrhesia, etc.);
  • research confronting Foucault's work with more current approaches like media studies, digital humanities, postcolonialism, new materialism;
  • research along Foucauldian lines (surveillance studies and governmentality studies, for example).
