Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issue



The volume is a guest edition of Foucault Studies, edited by Richard Alston and Shreyaa Bhatt. This is the first extended treatment of Foucault's engagement with Rome. It considers the improtance of Rome for Foucault's thought, the influence of Foucault on and reading of Foucault by Classical scholars and the ways in which Classical thought and history might engage with Foucault. It offers insight into the philosophical agenda of the late Foucault, considers Foucault against theories of reception, and analyses the political and philosophical content of Foucault's later work in conjunction with Classical texts. It is both innovative in methods and scholarly topic.
