In the volume, After Sex?, a meditation on the histories and possibilities of queer theory, editors Janet Halley and Andrew Parker rightly draw attention to Volumes I and II of Foucault’s History of Sexuality as crucial for all queer theory. But if these two volumes seeded this field, then it is Foucault’s contemplations on biopower and biopolitics, neoliberalism, governmen- tality that have continued to vitalize queer theory since then. Indeed, some of the most critical and generative interventions in queer theory insist not only on the centrality of sexuality as the “proper object” (after Judith Butler) but also trouble its parameters. This, we believe, is what is useful about Foucault Studies 14, a special issue on queer theory. The editors, Jana Sawicki (Williams College, USA) and Shannon Winnubst (Ohio State University, USA), offer our readers a rich selection of articles that think afresh the potentials of the History of Sexuality while engaging Foucault’s seminal influences more broadly through his work on biopolitics, neoliberalism, and other salient themes. It has been a pleasure to work with Jana Sawicki and Shannon Winnubst and we hope that readers will find the articles of interest and use.
Foucault Studies 14 also includes additional contributions, starting with the article, “Neosocial Market Economy” by Frieder Vogelmann (Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany), which addresses a methodological and a diagnostic question. Methodologically, it points out how Foucault’s lectures on governmentality—although often read as genealogical in character—rely on an “archeological dimension.” More precisely, Vogelmann demonstrates in a close reading how the genealogical focus on power struggles always already presupposes the archeological analysis of the formative systems of knowledge (savoir). In a second step this methodological frame is put to the test through the excavation of a uniquely contemporary form of govern- mental rationality: after classical liberalism, ordo-liberalism and neo-liberalism, neosocial market economy emerges. Drawing on recent developments in Germany, Vogelmann explores how a new form of the social has come to serve as a vehicle for denouncing the excessive self-conduct of individuals as championed by neo-liberalism. Neosocial market economy calls for a new ethically guided conduct that fuses the responsibility of the entrepreneurial subject for itself with responsibility for a network of communities. Read more on pdf
