Language, Culture, Power

This course examines structuralist and pragmatist, poststructuralist and post-pragmatist approaches to language and culture and their availability to a critical analysis of social power. The course is genealogical in spirit, beginning with a set of texts that have provided the touchstone for contemporary language and semiotic theory. Insofar as contemporary critical theory continues to return to these texts, they continue to provide an origination of possible openings and blockages to theories of power.
