The Phd Thesis is - roughly interpreted -: “Prisons and incarceration units. Analysis and interpretation of space contribution into the carnal embodiment of surveillance mechanisms, discipline and punishment onto the human body” with Prof. F. Oraiopoulos as leading tutor, Z. Kotionis and F. Giannissi. The research aims to elevate the awareness in all these mechanisms of repression, surveillance and correction which are characteristics of all incarceration units as well as their influence and method of embodiment onto the human body. The research is focusing on the iconic mock up worlds of the literary restrictive environments, set up by Marquis DeSade and Kafka respectively. It attempts to underline and record the ways and the mechanisms which promote and accomplish the transformation of the human body and its transition to a new docile ‘corrected’ body, naked from all its desires and needs, which (will) ultimately surrender all its existence to the hands of its immolator(s) (the Power) because this is the only acquired knowledge.
The methodology includes the record of these iconic literary environments of imprisonment as they are presented through the two writers; using texts, such as the vast majority of Sadeian works alongside with Kafkian “Penal Colony”. Also it records the mechanisms and the strategic techniques with are applied to their narrations in order to achieve discipline and ultimately ‘correction’. This database will be borrowing theories of contemporary and modern philosophers who are incarceration, space and the body orientated or specialized (for instance M. Foucault, G. Agamben, J. Butler and others) in a constant attempt to reevaluate their theories, in revealing in which ways they apply onto Marquis DeSade’s and Kafka’s work, relatively to the concept of surveillance, punishment, repression under the implementation to “The Power” to the level that the above weave the ‘transition’ and the ‘production’ of a new ‘ego’.
