I have been reading with interest the exchange of references about
Foucault, Art and Seeing, and have noted the references provided by Ned
and Kristin.

I have a postgrad session to deliver to our core Advanced Media Theory MA
group in around a month and I want to address Foucault's relevance for
Media Studies. In a third year Gender and the Media Class that the
majority completed last year we looked briefly at the relevance of his
theories of power/knowledge , discourse, the docile and inscribed body,
the *normal family* and* sexuality* for understanding representations of
bodies in the media as contested terrain.

I will work more on these themes but want to extend it to surveillance via
the media.

Any other ideas on good readings for any of the above topics?
