I am trying to find an appropriate department of history where I can study
(as a PhD) history of games and play in 18th-19th century, and follow the
transformation (systematization, classification and commodification) that
games had experienced in the context of modernity. I want my study to be
both a historical analysis and a critique of modernity, in the line more or
less conducted by Foucault and others. Do you know (or are you part of) any
departments of history, preferably in US, in which a Foucauldian approach to
history and modernity is predominant or in which there are good historians
who value and use Foucault's works?
I am open and grateful to any suggestions.
