The Foucault Circle is a regular gathering of scholars and educators who share a commitment to the articulation, critical evaluation, development, and use of the thought and work of Michel Foucault (French philosopher, historian, and activist, 1926-1984). We come together in a friendly and informal atmosphere to exchange ideas and projects, and also to encourage the creative appropriation of Foucauldian themes and ideas. 


As this is a young organization, we have not tried to be too ambitious in our projects, but we are open to growth and possibilities for expanding our activities.  If you are interested in participating in Foucault Circle meetings or other activities, please plan on attending our annual gathering (regardless of whether you are presenting a paper) or contacting someone listed on this page directly to discuss how you'd like to be involved.    


New: The program <pdf> and logistical information <pdf> for our 2014 meeting in Malmö, Sweden (June 5-8, 2014) are now available.


You can find more information about all of our events on our Announcements page, where there is also information on our new Google Group.
