The Point Is There Is No Point: Miasmic Cynicism and Cultural Studies Composition.
Langstraat, Lisa
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v22 n2 p293-325 Spr 2002
Explores cynicism and its institutional and pedagogical impact on cultural studies composition by discussing how cynicism in contemporary emotion culture can be understood as an effect of the shifting emotional identifications in postmodernism, particularly in light of mass-mediated consciousness. Argues that it is through cultural studies' methods of historicizing, intervening in, and maintaining a utopic vision about the possibility of revising cultural forms that educators can most effectively address cynicism.
