Critical Genealogies Workshop: Practicing Philosophical Critique following Michel Foucault

The Critical Genealogies Workshop provides a space of collaboration and experimentation for scholars who deploy genealogy in order to investigate problematizations, possibilizations, and assemblies of the contemporary. The purpose of the event is to present in-progress genealogical work so as to thematize and reflect on larger questions of research design, strategy, and structure and practical questions about conducting genealogical research. Approaching genealogy largely through the lens of Foucault, we also welcome other genealogical approaches of diverse inspiration. Above all, we endeavor to take seriously Foucault’s challenges to inherited practices of philosophical critique by taking up genealogy to interrogate the history of the present.
