In history, Margo's list includes modern European and world history, colonial and modern Latin American history, and a new strand in American history with a particular focus on the history of the American West and transnational US histories. She is particularly interested in projects that take up questions around histories of empire, imperialism, and colonialism; nationalism and citizenship; migration and borderlands; the history of science, technology, computing, and information; and the intersections of medicine and health with gender and race. She is especially interested in receiving pitches for books that contextualize historical events in ways that speak to audiences beyond academia and engage meaningfully with contemporary debates.

Michel Foucault — was born in Poiters, France. There, Foucault earned degrees in both psychology and philosophy, but his academic success was not easily gained. Later, in , while serving as a French delegate in Sweden, Foucault submitted his doctoral thesis at the University of Uppsala and had it rejected. Foucault was also well known in France for his political activism.

Foucault died in from an AIDS-related illness. Today he remains one of the most influential and widely read social theorists in recent history. Foucault was interested in the phenomenon of discourse throughout his career, primarily in how discourses define the reality of the social world and the people, ideas, and things that inhabit it. For Foucault, a discourse is an institutionalized way of speaking or writing about reality that defines what can be intelligibly thought and said about the world and what cannot. For Foucault, power and knowledge are not seen as independent entities but are inextricably related—knowledge is always an exercise of power and power always a function of knowledge.

Once solely a practice of the Christian Church, Foucault argues that it became diffused into secular culture and especially psychology in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Through these confessions, the idea of a sexual identity at the core of the self came into existence again, a form of knowledge , an identity that had to be monitored, cultivated, and often controlled again, back to power. Foucault argues that discipline is a mechanism of power that regulates the thought and behavior of social actors through subtle means.

In contrast to the brute, sovereign force exercised by monarchs or lords, discipline works by organizing space e. Surveillance is also an integral part of disciplinary practices. In his later work, Foucault coined the now influential concept of governmentality. Foucault was especially interested in how, in contemporary times, the governing of conduct was increasingly focused on the management of populations.
