The academic project I desire: finishing translations of “The Genealogy of Capital” volumes of Recherches

As I comb back through my rough translation of “La Ville-Métaphore” from volume 13 of Guattari’s journal Recherches, adding in all the quotations to the German Ideology, Grundrisse, & The Communist Manifesto that deal with the city/countryside binary, I realize that this is the exact project I want to do now:

I want to move to France and finish translating the two Genealogy of Capital volumes. I’ve made it through the Introduction to volume 13, La ville-ordinateur, Anne Querrien’s comments thereupon that did not make their way into the conversations between Deleuze, Guattari, Fourquet, and Foucault are in Semiotext(e)’s Foucault Live book, and now La ville-métaphore. Brett Mommersteeg has translated the Green Spaces essay and is working on the chapters on Medical Equipments and Educational Equipments. We’re planning on putting a proposal together toward the end of the summer, but this is what I want to keep doing…

    This is invaluable work. I was about to reblog the post, but realised you maybe want to hold back going too public until you’ve had a chance to approach a publisher. I’d be pleased to speak to Polity and U Minnesota Press about this – I think it would be a good fit. I’ve been debating proposing a book of Foucault’s collaborative projects to publishers – there is quite an extensive discussion of the work with CERFI and these volumes in Foucault: The Birth of Power, and say a bit about the followup research in Foucault’s Last Decade. My bibliography of this work is here – https://progressivegeographies.com/resources/foucault-resources/foucaults-collaborative-projects/
    Contact me by email at stuart.elden@warwick.ac.uk if you’d like to discuss.
