In the afterward, Ann Pellegrini offers a concise and playful reading of the
essays in the volume, suggesting that emerging throughout the book is a
‘theatrical’ analytic grid for reading Foucault – a dispositif for reading
Foucault’s profound engagement with theatre and theatrical ways of thinking.
What she further proposes is to attend to his performative mode of address
as a key way of thinking pedagogical practices. In Pellegrini’s account,
Foucault teaches us how to reconsider the performance of the pedagogue as an
intellectual character aware of her own ‘present moment’.
