The Politics of Postmodernism (New Accents)


Continuing the project begun in The Poetics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon focuses on the politics of representation. Looking at both mass media and high art forms, she challenges the seeming transparency and apparent apolitical innocence of our visual images and verbal stories, asserting that these construct rather than reflect or express our experience of the world.

In The Politics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon explores major examples of postmodern photographs and literary works. Hutcheon investigates the paradoxical nature of a project which, deconstructing our culture from a position squarely within, ultimately reinforces the cultural codes and conventions as much as it seeks to subvert them.
