Foucault and Neoliberalism

University Room: C-104
Friday, March 25, 2016 (All day) to Saturday, March 26, 2016 (All day)

For many admirers Foucault's thought provides recourses for resisting neoliberalism incursions that have dismantled or attacked the welfare state since the 1980s. Some of Foucault's critics, however, suggest just this opposite: Foucault's thinking on governmentality and anti-humanism led him by the late 1970s to political views eerily similar to those held by neoliberals. This conference brings together a number of leading Foucault scholars to discuss the debate over Foucault's relationship to neoliberalism.
