I actually don't know of many practising historians the department of
history in academia who engage in the kind of philosophic-historical
critiques that interested Foucault. I do know for sure of such work
being done extensively in the social sciences such as anthropology,
gender studies, sexuality studies, sociology, all of which are largely
historical in research and scope.
