Re: [Foucault-L] Foucault, intelligibility, social movements

If you are going down the autonomist movement influenced by Foucault, don't forget Franco 'Bifo' Berardi whose pottering around the UK at the moment promoting his new book 'The Soul at Work'

And in that vein (I don't know if it's been translated into English) there's Conversacioneos en el Impasse [trans. Conversations in the Impasse] (Tinta Limón, 2009). From the Latin American/ Post Autonomist Foucaultian influenced crossover train to subjectivisation-ville

Maybe you can look for Negri's works. I don't know any exact place, but in their Empire(with Hardt) there is a part called 'Biopolitical production'. I guess that Negri does not position himself as Gramscian or neo-gramscian; he is more likely to be Foucaultian or Deleuzean. Or you can check the Italian Autonomist movement (especially 1968-1977) and their debates. Radical Thought in Italy can be an essential source for this movement. (Hardt, Virno, Lazzarato, Negri etc...)
