Module VI - Structuralism and Poststructuralism

1 - 29 Mar '18 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm
 
 

The first half of the course begins with the structural linguistics of Saussure and Jakobson, moves to Barthes’s semiotics, and finishes with the structural anthropology of Levi-Strauss, Sahlins, and the early Foucault. Situating the shift to poststructuralism in the historical context of the 1960’s and 1970’s, the second half of the course begins with the later Foucault’s History of Sexuality and Discipline and Punish, moves to Derrida’s notion of différance and Deleuze’s conception of desire, and finishes by putting Marx into conversation with the later Lacan. Students will gain a foundational understanding of the epistemological contours and stakes of structuralism and poststructuralism.
