The Foucault Group at the University of Toronto cordially invites you to
Archives and the Event of God: The Impact of Michel Foucault on Philosophical Theology
A Luncheon with Dr. David Galston, Brock University
Michel Foucault’s influence continues to permeate an impressive number of disciplines. Assessing his legacy and influence remains a daunting task. Not much work has been done on how Foucault’s writings can inform the study of religion and theology. In his recent book (published by McGill-Queen’s University Press) David Galston explores the possibility of a Foucaultian way of thinking about God. We hope to facilitate a discussion of Galston’s use of Foucault for philosophical theology.
Dr. Galston will provide an overview of current scholarship on Foucault and Religion and present the central thesis of his recent book.
When: Friday, March 25 2011, 12.30-2pm
