Discipline and Punish


Michel Foucault

1926 CE – 1984 CE

Since his death in 1984, Michel Foucault has become a foundational figure for work across the humanities.  Foucault was highly educated in a variety of subjects and his work takes on an interdisciplinary character.  But more than that, it is also deeply informed by his own political activism and by struggles and frustrations in his personal life.
