ABSTRACT:
The notion of governmentality plays an essential role in Foucault’s analysis of the exercise of power in recent Western history with a special emphasis on liberalism and neoliberalism. And this analysis is eventually incorporated into a history of the constitution of the subject within the same time span. In this talk, Ferda Keskin will attempt to give an outline of the notion of governmentality as a model of power and discuss how it shapes neoliberal subjectivity.
