  Research Interests:

Among Professor Jameson's ongoing concerns is the need to analyze literature as an encoding of political and social imperatives, and the interpretation of modernist and postmodernist assumptions through a rethinking of Marxist methodology. His most frequently taught courses cover modernist literature and cinema, Marx and Freud, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, and Zizek, as well as the modern French novel and cinema, and the Frankfurt School. Professor Jameson is also the author many books, including Marxism and Form (1971), The Political Unconscious (1981), and Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism (1990, recipient of the MLA Lowell Award). His more recent works include Valences of the Dialectic (2009), The Antinomies of Realism (2013, recipient of the Truman Capote Award), and The Ancients and the Postmoderns (2015).
