Postmodernism

April 16, 2015

Vandenburg, Margaret Silver_nugget
Postmodernism

Professor Vandenberg is a genius. (Perhaps I shouldn't label her as one because she might argue that this sort of categorization is not only oppressive but a modernist notion that is no longer relevant following Barthes' Death of The Author). That being said, she operates on an entirely different level of intellectual thought. Don't let the theoretical essays and texts she references (many that you've never read) deter you; with time it becomes easier to place the references within the framework of the assigned postmodern novels. The following quotes best articulate the heart of her lectures:

"To be human is to be unextended" and "The cure to postmodernism is love."

Workload:

A lot of great reading. Two essays. A final.
