In a paragraph between 250-300 words, discuss how Foucault’s concept of identity as the “construction of docile bodies” relates to Lorde’s general discussion of patriarchal power on women’s bodies and political concerns. Questions to consider (but not necessary to address): In what ways can Foucault’s notion of institutional power on the routinized body be applied? Foucault is not discussing race or gender, and yet there are clear affinities between his theory and those of Lorde’s regarding the intersections of both—what are these affinities? Is there a point, praxis, or politics to either of these pieces and if so, what is it?
