Foucault, Cultural Studies, and Governmentality

Foucault, Cultural Studies, and Governmentality

Applies Foucault's ideas to a cultural studies framework. Offering new and unique approaches bridging the gap between cultural analysis and governmentality studies in the United States, this book opens up new lines of inquiry into cultural practices and offers fresh perspectives on Foucault’s writings and their implications for cultural studies. It provides critical frameworks to analyze cultural practices and strategies of governing as ways of understanding the present. It also broadens the theater of intellectual debates over “culture and governing” studies from their current locales in Australia and Great Britain to the United States. "I see this as an important addition to the debates on how to read culture because it suggests lines of thinking that will be of interest to many scholars who, like myself, are approaching these questions from different angles." — Rosemary Hennessy, author of Profit and Pleasure: Sexual Identities in Late Capitalism "This book is intriguing in that it takes on varied issues of contemporary interest and importance. It will be useful to people doing work within and across several disciplines and in public policy making." — Erin Mitchell, State University of New York at Plattsburgh Contributors include Tony Bennett, Jack Z. Bratich, Mary Coffey, Greg Dimitriadis, Lawrence Grossberg, James Hay, Lisa King, Samantha J. King, Cameron McCarthy, Shawn Miklaucic, Toby Miller, Jeremy Packer, Carrie A. Rentschler, and Jonathan Sterne.
