Minor in Contemporary Studies - The Deconstruction of the Tradition II CTMP 4002   The Deconstruction of the Tradition II
CREDIT HOURS: 3
While the main practitioners of deconstruction sought to interrogate traditional concepts of identity, selfhood, representation, truth, essence, and origin, their own writings are not free of epistemic – and even ontological – violence. We will re-examine these texts through the lens of post-colonial, feminist, and race theory, and inquire into the continuing value of deconstruction in the contemporary world.
