I have to go to Buffalo for a couple of days to see if they have any English departments that need evaluatin’ around those parts, but while I’m gone, do check out this interview with Amanda Anderson on interpretive theory, poststructuralist cryptonormativism, and communicative rationality. Think of it as the Return of Theory Tuesday—on Monday!
And while I agree with Amanda about most things, I have to say that I would have answered the final question differently.
Q. Has the internet changed the way that you read and write?
A. Dood! In my recent essay, “The Theory of Communicative Action Totally Pwns Poststructuralism,” I argue that the attempt to craft a “strategic essentialism” so as to parse the competing claims of theory and practice was teh l4m3. So yes, you could say the Internets have changed the way I write.
But that’s just me.
