Terms of the Day for November 23

  • Text - the words of speech written or printed in such a way as to be read and analyzed by literate individuals.
  • Deconstructionism -  a form of semiotic analysis, derived mainly from French philosopher Jacques Derrida's 1967 work Of Grammatology. Derrida proposed the deconstruction of all texts where binary oppositions are used in the construction of meaning and values.
  • Narrative - any account that presents connected events or images.  Since Modern Art rejected narrative in favor of abstraction, many Postmodern artists were newly attracted to it in the late 20th century.
  • Counternarrative – a narrative which co-exists with, while contradicting, another established narrative.
