ENGLISH 203: Michel Foucault

This course examines the middle period of the work of the philosopher, historian, and social theorist Michel Foucault. We will study Foucault¿s portrayal of the workings of power in modern societies, on topics of rule, reform, governance, population, psychology, and identity. The course will examine four major works tracing changes in Western Europe from roughly 1680 to 1980: The History of Sexuality, Vol. 1; Discipline and Punish; Security, Territory, Population; and The Birth of Biopolitics. The course considers Foucault as a historian and theorist, not as a literary critic. Some notice will be taken of the implications of his theories for literature, arts, and media, and for the daily life and self-conception of any individual in the late modern United States.
