Presentation of the joint projects supported by the lab Triangle (Université de Lyon) FFL: (Foucault Reading Notes, ANR funded project, 2017-2020) and EDIFOU (Foucault's manuscripts on phenomenology, 1950s at Bibliothèque nationale de France archive: a digital approach to the edition, Marie Skłodowska-Curie funded project, 2019-2021).

The aim of the FFL project (https://ffl.hypotheses.org/presentation-du-projet) is both to explore and to make available online a large set of Michel Foucault’s reading notes (organized citations, references and comments) held at the Bibliothèque nationale de France since 2013. The challenge is to build a digital environment that can integrate different dimensions: anthology of citations, multi-indexed files, series of organized files etc. The FFL project aims to allow a new approach to Foucault’s work, based on the analysis of Foucault’s reading practices and pathways of thought that they make possible to trace. Building on this basis, EDIFOU (http://triangle.ens-lyon.fr/spip.php?article8672) especially focuses on the analysis of Foucault’s manuscripts of the 1950s and the early 1960s, namely, the manuscripts devoted to phenomenology, psychology, psychopathology, and anthropology.
