course - postmodernism

This course is designed introduce students to a number of aspects of Postmodern Culture. This includes postmodern fiction and other areas of postmodern culture including cultural theory, architecture, performance, TV and film, and art.

The principle aim is to try to distinguish some key postmodern themes and ideas within and across different areas of contemporary culture, and to organise and practice informed critical response to these ideas.

The objective is NOT to determine definitively what postmodernism is, but to explore ways in which it manifests itself in artistic practice and ways in which it is being theorised. In other words, what are people saying about postmodernism and what are they doing that might be described as postmodern.
