Michel Foucault’s work has been influential in a wide range of disciplines and this short course introduces the uses of Foucault’s theory and method within the social sciences. The short courses is structured to provide an insight into the ways Foucault’s technique and method have been taken up in sociology and applied to social research. Focusing on discourse as the cornerstone of Foucault’s methods our aim is to reconsider the status of ‘reality’ in the social sciences.
