What Is an Author?


On Monday 12th October from 1 – 3pm in room G202 we’ll be responding to Michel Foucault’s text ‘What Is an Author?

We’ll open up the text in whatever way we choose; pursuing whatever interests or frustrates us most.

In the background of our reading we’ll be invited to consider what Foucault refers to as ‘the role of the dead man [sic] in the game of our writing’, and what this might mean for reflection-in-practice (Schön) and the writing and reading of a thesis.

In short, ‘[w]hat difference does it make who is speaking?’

Everyone is welcome.

(Text introduced by Jonathan Baxter.)
