This presentation was made at a research seminar at Aarhus University aimed at identifying and debating the communalities and tensions that exist between Michel Foucault’s relational approach to power and ANT’s take on the social. The argument being that Foucault with the mediation of Deleuze can help the post-ANT movement unsettle the blackbox, so to speak. After all, towards the end of Discipline and Punish Foucault reminds us all, that analytically "we must hear the distant roar of battle” (Discipline and Punish).
