>Panel Proposal
>Modernist Studies Association Annual Conference
>November 3-6
>Chicago, IL
>
>Deconstruction and Critical Theory are two intellectual tendencies
>commonly associated with the phenomenon of "theory" in the American
>academy.  Common offspring of Nietzsche's antifoundationalism, both of
>these theoretical models share a suspicion of the totalizing impulse that
>characterizes much of the Western metaphysical tradition.  Yet,
>deconstruction and Critical Theory also constitute distinct philosophical
>itineraries and legacies; for example, Derrida's engagement with
>Saussurian linguistics or Heidegger is far removed from Adorno's attempt
>to reinvent dialectical thought.  This panel aims to define points of
>intersection as well as points of divergence between these two currents by
>examining their relationship to such areas as aesthetic theory, political
>theory, and psychoanalysis.
