Rethinking the University explores and develops key critical debates in the humanities--concerning postmodernism, New Historicism, political criticism, cultural studies, interdisciplinarity and deconstruction--in the context of the various crises facing academic institutions. Wortham's analysis of the characteristic features of today's university is guided by a close reading of important critics on the question of the institution itself.
