it was amazing
bookshelves: research, teaching

I enjoyed this book for its content but it also serves as an excellent case study for young academics grappling with how to make a mere interest or clever insight relevant. An excellent read for introducing postmodernism/poststructuralism. It grounds theory and demonstrates how the theoretical orientation has materiality. It also helps students understand how to make the distinction between how their work can be read as rhetorically significant rather than rhetorically interesting.
