|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject will proceed through close examinations of a series of debates that continue to influence literary studies today. The debates have been chosen for both their centrality and their diversity, for their historical force as for their abiding contemporary significance, for their dense particularities as for their global import. The situations, conditions, agents, arguments, concepts and consequences of the debates will be examined in detail. Key figures examined may include Alan Sokal, Jacques Derrida, Jrgen Habermas, Pierre Bourdieu, Judith Butler, Julia Kristeva, Alain Badiou, Jacques RanciÃƒre, among others. The particular case-studies will also serve to illuminate such general headings as Literature and Science, Literature and History,Literature and Politics, Literature and Philosophy‚ Literature and Society, Literature and Sexuality, Literature and Postcolonialism etc.
