Foucault Circle Conference Begins March 31

All are invited to attend the Foucault Circle Conference to be held on campus Saturday, March 31 from 9:10 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. and Sunday, April 1 from 9:10 a.m. until 12:15 p.m.

The Foucault Circle is a regular gathering of scholars and educators who share a commitment to the critical evaluation, development, and use of the thought and work of Michel Foucault (French philosopher, historian, and activist, 1926-1984).  The conference is an annual event where an international group of scholars come together in a collegial and relaxed atmosphere to exchange ideas and projects while encouraging the creative appropriation of Foucauldian themes and ideas.

The Foucault Circle values the intense, concentrated exchanges that develop within the context of a small conference.  For this reason, there are no concurrent sessions.  For a complete program, click here (Adobe Acrobat PDF).

Registration will be on site with a sliding fee. Please RSVP via email to with Foucault Circle as the subject or call the Department of Philosophy at Ext. 2320.  For program and scheduling information, click here.
