Foucault across the disciplines conference audio online

Earlier this year a conference on “Foucault across the disciplines” was held at Santa Cruz. Speakers included a pretty stellar cast of Foucault specialists and others who have drawn significantly on Foucault’s work including Ian Hacking, Paul Rabinow, Jana Sawicki, Arnold Davidson, and Donna Haraway working across a range of topics.

Here is the conference schedule with titles of presentations. Luckily for those who were unable to attend audio recordings are now available.
