Foucauldian Analysis (Chapter 628)

Kim McKee

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


    Derived from the work of the French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault, Foucauldian analysis has gained recent prominence within housing studies. Central to this approach is an interest in power and the formation of the human subject. It emphasises the productive nature of power and its creative and facilitative possibilities, as well as the freedom of the governable subject to resist attempts to regulate their behaviour. More generally, it illuminates how we think about the nature and practice of governing, and how this has changed throughout history.
