Quote of the Day: Friday, September 15, 2005

The bedrock principle of postmodernism is subjectivity, the idea that the world looks different depending where you stand, both literally and figuratively. The fancy name for this is positionality; a variety of things – race, class, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, educational level, experiences – combine to produce your positionality.” – Laura Wexler, from her Essay, “Saying Goodbye to ‘Once Upon a Time,’ or Implementing Postmodernism in Creative Nonfiction”
