For those who are interested, the American Educational Research Association
has recently granted "official" status to a new Special Interest Group
entitled: "Foucault and Education."

The SIG is "dedicated to the historical/philosophical studies of education
that engage the writings of Michel Foucault." It was started, in part, to
increase the awareness and acceptance of research that utilizes Foucault's
work. We are excited and enthusiastic about starting the SIG and hope it
provides a forum for further discussion and application of his writing.

We will have an organizational meeting during the AERA Annual Meeting in
San Diego, CA on Thursday, April 16th at 6:15 in the Columbia 3 room of the
Mariott Hotel (North Tower, Lobby Level). No notification will be in the
convention schedule, but we will put flyers around. Please help us pass
the word.

Annual dues are $2.00 and any AERA member can join. We need more members
by the end of the conference to get on the "call for papers" list for the
1999 conference. Anyone interested can contact me at the address and
numbers below.
