Foucault’s Naissance de la Biopolitique

I’m giving a new paper (part of a chapter) on Foucault’s Naissance de la Biopolitique at the Crime and Punishment Workshop (Feb. 8th) and the Political Theory Workshop (Feb. 11th). It’s a first stab at Foucault’s understanding of the neo-liberal turn in criminology to homo œconomicus in Chicago School economics of crime and punishment (i.e. Becker, Stigler, Ehrlich). Mostly, it’ll be fun to see how poor my french translation skills are.
