Overview Overview
 

The purpose of this module is three-fold. The first is to introduce the student to some of the ideas in the writings of Michel Foucault, who is practically impossible to ignore in any discussion of power and knowledge. The second is to introduce several ideas concerning how institutions have been theorized that echo one another to an extent, but that also diverge in crucial ways. The third is to look at some current work clearly influenced by these sources.
