FOUCAULT IN THE FOOD BANK
FROM DISCOURSE TO DISPOSITIVE ANALYSIS
Chris Möller, University of Strathclyde
In this session, Chris Möller gives an overview of his recently published book on Food charity and the psychologisation of poverty. Drawing on examples from his research on food banks and behavioural solutions to poverty in the UK, we’ll discuss what makes discourse analysis ‘critical’ and how it can not only describe but also transform social realities.
