Document Summary

The term entered into our popular discourse during the 60"s a ime when much change was taking place was also resuling in the quesioning of truth and universal thought. For sontag, postmodernism was marked by a new sensibility following a collapse(or dislodging) of the binary of high and low. Modernism has become eliist, rarely containing the subversive impulse it once did and in efect, had become castrated to any subversive inclinaion. For frederic jameson, this change was the result of a paricular shit: The classics (canon) were once opposiional, but had been re-consituated through an endorsement of the academics (university, galleries and museums) to be dominant, or hegemonic. These texts become saniized, normalized, expected and produces norms. A postmodernism does not only quote other cultural texts, but incorporate them to the point any distance between the two threatens to collapse. He calls this the death of the subject, the end of individualism.
