re: History of...

We basically need to rewrite the history of _everything_ from within a
Foucauldian/genealogical/nomadic point of view, but the one I most wish to
see, and will write one day if nobody else will, is a genealogy of modern
historiographic practice itself.

Foucault wrote the history of madness, the medical gaze, the prison system,
sexuality. I have read that his next work, if he had lived, was going to
be a history of war, the institutions of war and the military dimension of
society. I thought that other topics that would be prime for Foucauldian
study would be the history of death, dreams, eroticism, and marriage. I
would like to know what everyones thoughts are concerning what histories
of... would yield the most interesting results if looked at from a
Foucauldian perspective.
