I ♥ poststructuralism

Michael Drout has an excellent post about the state of the MLA.

I blame poststructuralism for the problems he identifies. If nothing has inherent meaning (or even significant cultural connotation), one can’t argue for anything. If indeed everything is meaningless, let’s keep that under wraps, so we can go on living. Sound like a deal?

(More later, I hope. . . .)

Ooh.. burn. That was indeed an excellent post you linked to. I admit that I'm happy that poststructuralism has made only limited movements into international relations.
