Post-Modern Theory with an Historical Intent
HIST 318
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 218

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