Popular illegalism on the nineteenth-century stage
Tony Fisher

poor play belonged to a wider discursive field, I turn first to Michel Foucault’s work on nineteenth-century political economy, drawing also on later Foucauldian scholarship that emerged in response to the influential theme of governmentality, developed by Foucault during the lecture courses held at the Collège de France in Paris in the 1970s and 1980s. For this, and for a

Encounters with biosocial power
Author: Kevin Ryan

Refiguring childhood stages a series of encounters with biosocial power, which is a specific zone of intensity within the more encompassing arena of biopower and biopolitics. Assembled at the intersection of thought and practice, biosocial power attempts to bring envisioned futures into the present, taking hold of life in the form of childhood, thereby bridging being and becoming while also shaping the power relations that encapsulate the social and cultural world(s) of adults and children. Taking up a critical perspective which is attentive to the contingency of childhoods – the ways in which particular childhoods are constituted and configured – the method used in the book is a transversal genealogy that moves between past and present while also crossing a series of discourses and practices framed by children’s rights (the right to play), citizenship, health, disadvantage and entrepreneurship education. The overarching analysis converges on contemporary neoliberal enterprise culture, which is approached as a conjuncture that helps to explain, and also to trouble, the growing emphasis on the agency and rights of children. It is against the backdrop of this problematic that the book makes its case for refiguring childhood. Focusing on the how, where and when of biosocial power, Refiguring childhood will appeal to researchers and students interested in examining the relationship between power and childhood through the lens of social and political theory, sociology, cultural studies, history and geography.

related to a wider cross-disciplinary theorising of archives, I have argued that the ubiquity of the archive in art discourse must be connected to conditions very specific to contemporary art. One of this book's key propositions is that the notion of the archive comes to be intertwined with the structural underpinning of the post-war artworld. The notion of the archive formulated by Michel Foucault as ‘the law of what can be said’ could be seamlessly attached to the institutional theory of art, which had replaced the previous grounding of artworks in a teleological

Musical timekeeping and the security.state
Steve Potter

Collège de France, ‘Foucault distinguishes security mechanisms from disciplinary mechanisms for the first time in the final lecture (17 March 1976) of the 1975–1976 course “ Il faut défendre la sociéte ” p. 219; “Society Must Be Defended” p. 246’.

Conclusion Birgit Lang, Joy Damousi and Alison Lewis This volume delineates the changing forms of the case study across disciplines and decades, mapping circuits of knowledge through which the sexed and gendered human subject became a persistently urgent topic of enquiry in the Western world. A History of the Case Study presents an analysis of case writing about the human subject from a critical juncture in its formation in the second half of the nineteenth century, when, as claimed by Michel Foucault, sexuality came to be regarded as a conceptual part of human

questions of the certainties of progress; an art concerned to make difficult that which has, in some other contexts, been made to seem straightforward (to invoke here a comment made by Michel Foucault on the idea of critique7). It is, therefore, through an insistence on avoiding closure, on aesthetic qualities of provisionality and precariousness, on constant alertness to the haunting of the present, that art can, potentially at least, point us towards the necessary antagonism of ‘the political’ –​ making inconveniently visible, as Chantal Mouffe has said, ‘what the

political ideologies. Michel Foucault's ‘docile bodies’ of the twentieth century have not disappeared. The acts of surveillance, regulation, and taxonomy remain pivotal, in explicit and discrete ways, to how state(s) apparatus demonstrate value to society and the value of society. Legacies of the Magdalen Laundries emerges during the Decade of Centenaries in Ireland, and its authors remain fully cognisant of this difficult yet significant temporal resonance. This volume is an academic, artistic, and activist response drawing from intersectional fields of research to

the ways in which immigrants ‘adapt informally’ (Gray 2006: 120). Instead, integration policies have been treated with great seriousness, as if there is an axiomatic relationship between policy rhetoric and practice. Moreover, integration policies have avoided sustained critical analysis. Her essay on the Irish situation draws from the insights of Michel Foucault (1991) to argue that migrants are today problematised, constructed as populations and subjected to a mode of neo-liberal governmentality. The aim, Gray argues, is to manage migration and render immigrants

Surveillance, reason and desire in the plays of Howard Barker

R&G 08_Tonra 01 11/10/2013 16:16 Page 82 8 Places of punishment: surveillance, reason and desire in the plays of Howard Barker Michael Mangan We required Michel Foucault to elaborate what most Europeans have always suspected about dark places and speaking: that confession comes easiest in the dark, and that it is vastly more sexually stimulating to tell than to keep silent. Howard Barker1 The relationship between rationalisation and the excesses of political power is evident. And we should not need to wait for bureaucracy or concentration camps to recognize the
