Postmodern Theory with a Historical Intent

HIST 318
Summer 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: COL 218
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

This seminar will examine the possibility of employing recent advances in postmodern philosophy in the service of rigorous historical investigation. Can postmodern theory be used historically, or are these two terms antithetical? We will explore the origins of postmodernism and its various incarnations (in poststructuralism, postcolonialism, gender studies, and feminist theory) and then look to apply these methodologies in specific historical case studies.
