Abstract

The Exhaustion of Difference is a multi-disciplined treatise on the state of cultural studies at the university. In his analysis, Alberto Moreiras merges culture, politics, and philosophy to comment on cultural identity within rampant globalization and assimilation to Western European, capitalist values. Moreiras censures the purpose of the university as a means of global domination. He advocates reframing cultural studies through subalternity as an alternative to more traditional (e.g., area studies) conceptualizations of identity and difference.
