RE: Collège courses

Just to add to this, four have been published in French so far - 1974, 1975,
1976, 1982. 1976 is, as Mark states, already out in English, 1975 is due any
time, 1982 has been translated and is being edited, and the translation of
1974 is in progress. The last three all translated by Graham Burchell.

1978 and 1979, edited by Michel Sennelart are due next year, for the 20th
anniversary of Foucault's death.

(minor point: the courses ran on academic years, so 1975-76 is the strict
date for the one we are calling 1976 above. For most courses this is not
relevant, as they ran from Jan to March, but Le pouvoir psychiatrique, for
example, is from 7 Nov 1973 to 6 Feb 1974)

According to the French editions, there are two more courses, 1983 Le
Gouvernement de soi et des autres and 1984 Le Gouvernement de soi et des
autres: le courage de la verite. Foucault never wrote the course summaries
of these - too ill for the first, and he must have already died by the time
the second was due, which is why they don't appear in Resume des cours or
Essential Works Vol I. I am pretty certain he did deliver the courses

And apparently there are plans for some other courses too - one from
Vincennes has definitely been talked about.

On the AIDS issue, I also think that Daniel Defert, Foucault's partner, was
crucial in the setting up of the ACT-UP network.
