Processes of Subjectivation: The Biopolitics and Politics of Literature in the Later Foucault
The last few years saw the publication of the lectures given by Michel Foucault at the Collège de France from 1970-71 until the year of his death, 1984. In May 2015, Éditions du Seuil published Théories et institutions pénales (1971-1972), which is the last volume of the series. Knowledge of these published lectures has led to a return to the French thinker’s work and to a transformation of the studies on subjectivity and politics both in literary theory and philosophy. The study of his work, in particular of his later theoretical production and of its reception, is therefore necessary and urgent. This special issue attends the influence of the later Foucault’s legacy, focusing on the central theme of the processes of subjectivation and what are considered to be its two of the most important roots: the literary and the political.
