Inside the School of Social Work

  • Taking the Class Along

    I think Foucault would have agreed that today's "technology of power" is the Internet, and he most likely would have condemned our surrender to the panopticon-like society, with its invasive surveillance system where we are constantly online and visible. If he heard about online teaching, he would have urged us as academics to be cautious of actively participating in the formation of the disciplinary society, where the private is public and where privacy and introspection are being pushed aside.
