Welcome!

Welcome to Readings in Critical Theory.

We read texts (fiction and non-fiction) that have a bearing on critical theory covering, but not limited to, the rise and development of the postmodern (and post-postmodern) era.

Topics related to textuality, structuralism, post-structuralism, deconstruction, narratology, colonialism and post-colonialism, history, religion, gender, ethnicity, hybridity, urban studies, film studies, pop culture, art, architecture, photography, cybertheory, and others, will be discussed as readings are subjected to the dialogic exchanges offered by the new technologies of the Internet.

In practice, this means that when a text is suggested for reading, discussion starts as soon as possible!
