Short talks on parts of Foucault’s “Abnormal” (video)

Jan Blommaert

In these short clips, I talk about chapters 5 and 6 of Michel Foucault’s book “Abnormal”, one of the seminal texts for our understanding of the power-knowledge system characterizing modernity. I recorded the talks for the benefits of our first-year BA students in Online Culture at Tilburg University, who are reading the book and seek to apply insights from it to contemporary online contexts.

Chapter 5: The small monsters

 

Chapter 6: The readable body
