Foucault's concepts, methods and arguments invite us to look as much before as behind and beyond both pragmatic policy formulations and abstract theoretical critiques, in order to investigate the everyday functioning and effects of relations of power, forms of knowledge and ways of relating ethically to oneself and others. Yet, despite a vast scholarship on the work of Foucault, the field of education has been relatively under-represented in terms of full-length studies as envisaged by this research project.
