FREN 50.06 Michel Foucault et l’Histoire de la sexualité

Michel Foucault was one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. His work on sexuality has influenced cultural studies, gender studies, and queer theory. Foucault’s thesis is that “sexuality” is produced by discourses of power operating in the family, schools, hospitals, clinics, and prisons. This course examines the genealogy of this proposition within a tradition of thought about the body, identity, individuality, and subjectivity.

Dist:LIT; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.


Not offered in the period from 17F through 19S
