Welcome - Critical Theory: The Ethical Turn ENGL 5917   Critical Theory: The Ethical Turn
Under fire for a lack of commitment in the 1980s, critical theory (postmodernism, post structuralism, and deconstruction) takes an "ethical turn" in 1990s to explore issues of social and political justice and to interrogate notions of identity, politics, and the social construction of gender. This course attempts to study some of these innovative critical interventions and to re-enact them in the classroom.
