IN THIS CLASS, WE'LL ENCOUNTER
THREE BODIES OF THOUGHT THAT
OFFER FOUNDATIONAL CRITIQUES OF
THE ENLIGHTENMENT SUBJECT:
MARXISM, PSYCHOANALYSIS, AND
GENEALOGICAL THINKING INDEBTED TO
NIETZSCHE AND ELABORATED IN THE
WORK OF MICHEL FOUCAULT. WE'LL
ALSO EXPLORE SOME CRITICAL
TRADITIONS THAT ADDRESS THE
OMISSIONS AND LIMITS OF THESE
BODIES OF THOUGHT TO AUGUR THE
MOBILIZATION OF A COUNTER-
MODERNITY: KEY INTERVENTIONS
WITHIN POSTCOLONIAL, FEMINIST,
QUEER, AND CRITICAL RACE STUDIES.

SIGNIFICANT "TURNS" IN CRITICAL

YOU'LL INCREASE YOUR FACILITY AND
FAMILIARITY WITH A RANGE OF
THEORETICAL TEXTS AND DEBATES!
