The Chronicle of Higher Education Book Review: 'Theory at Yale: The Strange Case of Deconstruction in America '

27th January 2016

“Redfield neither over-promises nor misrepresents his goals, and as a series of deconstructive analyses, Theory at Yale is spot on,” writes Gregory Jones-Katz of The Chronicle of Higher Education while reviewing Fordham University Press’ Theory at Yale: Deconstruction in America, released in Fall 2015.

Author Marc Redfield is a Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Brown University and uses his talents to examine in his book the affinity between “theory” and “deconstruction,” which emerged in the 1970s due to the “Yale Critics.”
