Foucault’s ‘Le desordre des familles’ to be translated

A bit of Internet sleuthing turns up the fact that finally Foucault’s book Le Desordre des familles, lettres de cachet, with Arlette Farge, originally published in 1982, is being translated into English.

Nancy Luxon, a professor of political science at the University of Minnesota, is listing it on her CV with a publication date of 2015.

I wrote about this a few years ago as having some potential parallels to the so-called National Security Letters (NSLs) which are in the news again regarding the NSA.

I found this out because I am looking for a translation project from French. Any other interesting candidates?

    Jeremy Crampton with news of a long-overdue translation.

  2. Something by Jacques Donzelot, maybe La Nouvelle Question Urbaine? The only English translation I’m aware of is The Policing of Families.
