    THE PRODUCTIVE HYPOTHESIS: FOUCAULT, GENDER, AND THE HISTORY OF SEXUALITY* CAROLYN J. DEAN. In Sade there are no shadows.-Michel Foucault. The sexuality [Foucault] serves us is the rise and deployment of the desiring subject, sexuality as the life and times of desiring man in bondage and being disciplined and loving every minute of it, and loving his struggle to get out of it . As critics have often noted, Foster’s claim on her novel’s title page that The Coquette is “founded in FACT” is both a convention of eighteenth-century fiction and, in this case, more than simply conventional 25 Nine years prior to her literary resurrection as Foster’s protagonist, Eliza Wharton, Elizabeth Whitman arrived at the Bell. As Katie Halsey aptly notes, “[A]n understanding of eighteenth-century anxieties over gender roles is central to an understanding of the history of education” (). Recognizing these sexual politics is also integral to discerning the symbiotic—and potentially subversive—relationships among gender roles, education, and reading.
