James Faubion, Foucault editor, in video talk on the postmodern

The Center for Ethnography at UC Irvine has recorded a conversation (scroll down to March 20-21) and talk by Dominic Boyer and James Faubion, who you may recall was an editor of Volume 3 of the Essential Works of Foucault.

Faubion is at Rice University and recently published an interesting-looking paper on the ecology of “heterotopia” (.doc) (“Foucault’s approach to the heterotopic makes a bow to the phenomenologists of space, but only to leave them behind…”).

The subject of the Irvine talk is on the “ethnography of intellectuals and the predicaments of theory today.”
