Description - Post-theory by Martin McQuillan
The first part of this work addresses the current state of critical theory, and questions the "post-ness" of the epistemological space after the event of theory as an institutional practice. The second part contains examples of the type of work theory has made possible, demonstrating the new directions opening up both within theory itself and in cross-disciplinary study as a result of theory. In this sense, "post" can be understood to be in dialogue with issues relating to postmodernism, post-Marxism and post-feminism.
