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.
9:45-11:30: Panel: Foucault, Science, Media
Karen Barad, “Discontinuities, Phase Transitions, & Power Dynamics: When micro-physics goes nano”
Mark Poster, “Foucault, Deleuze, and New Media”

1:00-2:00: Lunch Break
2:00-4:15: Panel: Foucault, Power, Politics
