Applications of Postmodernism

THROUGHOUT THIS GUIDE TO THEORY, I have tried, when possible, to offer a certain consistency to the applications by analyzing the same material from different theoretical perspectives. When possible, I have provided one application through a reading of the Dürer image associated with the given section of this Guide to Theory, as I do here. In the case of postmodernism, I have not provided a reading of Spenser's Sonnet 37 and 74, as I do in many of the other introductions, but have turned instead to Star Trek, thus avoiding the obvious difficulty of applying postmodern theory to works that predate the period to which "postmodernity" usually applies. Under Lesson Plans, I have also provided a class plan that uses Star Trek to introduce undergraduate students to postmodernism.
