Foucault und die Groupe d’Information sur les Prisons

Foucault News kündigt folgende Neuerscheinung an:

Welch, Michael: Counterveillance: How Foucault and the Groupe d’Information sur les Prisons reversed the optics, in: Theoretical Criminology August, 15.2011/3, S. 301-313.
doi: 10.1177/1362480610396651

Abstract:
The analysis herein considers the dynamics of panopticism by developing further the concept of counter-surveillance—or counterveillance—whereby prison officials rather than the prisoners become the target of unwanted attention. While maintaining an interest in panoptic as well as synoptic theory, the article describes two counterveillant tactics deployed by Foucault and the Groupe d’Information sur les Prisons (GIP) in France during the 1970s. First, the GIP turned the prison inside out, in a manner of speaking, so as to publicly expose the harsh conditions of confinement. Second, the group set out to watch the watchers in an effort to hold certain prison administrators accountable for their unjust policies and practices. Implications of optical activism aimed at improving transparency in penal operations also are discussed alongside the limits of such protest.
