Dr. Charlie S. Veric
This course is a discussion of texts as a social field rather than as an autonomous object of inquiry. Focus is on discursive practices as generated by differences in a complex field of contestation in which issues from textual and contextual relationships challenge and negotiate significance(s) for ascendancy.
