Punishment in society.
Record a presentation (using powerpoint) which summarises and critiques the theoretical contributions to the study of punishment of Foucault.
Presentation is based on a key thinker and thus bases itself off his main piece of writing. For instance with Foucault Discipline and Punish. For Presentation enough to have 7-9 references. More engagement with fewer sources is valid in an assessment like this, which is quite narrow in focus.
Foucault Key concepts
Foucault’s analytical framework for understanding punishment is based on three inter-related concepts:
Power – power refers to forms of domination which exist in all forms of social life.
Knowledge – is only possible through power and vice-versa.
The Body – is the site at which power and knowledge are localised.
Total observation could be achieved though the ‘Panopticon’- a prison design developed by Jeremy Bentham
Garland (1990) and Hudson (2003), whilst being generally supportive of Foucault’s work, provide some critiques :
