Abstract

A group interview on issues of methodology in the work of Michel Foucault, the discussion focuses less on the 'interpretation' of Foucault's work and more on the critical and transformative redeployment of Foucault's philosophical toolkit. What is most usable in Foucault's genealogical method for today's critical tasks? What is most unusable, or frustrating, in Foucault's library for us today? And who else might we turn to alongside Foucault for our critical, philosophical, and historical energies?

Keywords: deleuze, eurocentrism, foucault, genealogy, latour, methodology, migration, terrorism
