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

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

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

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’.

A conceptual history 1200–1900

This collection explores how concepts of intellectual or learning disability evolved from a range of influences, gradually developing from earlier and decidedly distinct concepts, including ‘idiocy’ and ‘folly’, which were themselves generated by very specific social and intellectual environments. With essays extending across legal, educational, literary, religious, philosophical, and psychiatric histories, this collection maintains a rigorous distinction between historical and contemporary concepts in demonstrating how intellectual disability and related notions were products of the prevailing social, cultural, and intellectual environments in which they took form, and themselves performed important functions within these environments. Focusing on British and European material from the middle ages to the late nineteenth century, this collection asks ‘How and why did these concepts form?’ ‘How did they connect with one another?’ and ‘What historical circumstances contributed to building these connections?’ While the emphasis is on conceptual history or a history of ideas, these essays also address the consequences of these defining forces for the people who found themselves enclosed by the shifting definitional field.

Then and now

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

Youth, pop and the rise of Madchester
Author: Steve Redhead

Madchester may have been born at the Haçienda in the summer of 1988, but the city had been in creative ferment for almost a decade prior to the rise of Acid House. The End-of-the-Century Party is the definitive account of a generational shift in popular music and youth culture, what it meant and what it led to. First published right after the Second Summer of Love, it tells the story of the transition from New Pop to the Political Pop of the mid-1980s and its deviant offspring, Post-Political Pop. Resisting contemporary proclamations about the end of youth culture and the rise of a new, right-leaning conformism, the book draws on interviews with DJs, record company bosses, musicians, producers and fans to outline a clear transition in pop thinking, a move from an obsession with style, packaging and synthetic sounds to content, socially conscious lyrics and a new authenticity.

This edition is framed by a prologue by Tara Brabazon, which asks how we can reclaim the spirit, energy and authenticity of Madchester for a post-youth, post-pop generation. It is illustrated with iconic photographs by Kevin Cummins.

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
