Mitchell Dean

Professor of Public Governance

Mitchell Dean has been Professor of Public Governance at the Copenhagen Business School since 2012. He is best known for his Governmentality: Power and Rule in Modern Society (1999/2010), a work cited in both the Oxford English Dictionary’s entry on government and in the first French and English editions of Foucault’s lectures on the topic.  The origins for his new book (with Daniel Zamora), The Last Man Takes LSD: Foucault and the End of Revolution (Verso 2021), can be traced to an event at the University of Amsterdam in 2016.
