Stephen J. Burn, Jonathan Franzen at the End of Postmodernism.  [cached]
Jaroslav Kusnír
European Journal of American Studies , 2010, DOI: 10.4000/ejas.8508
Abstract: Although there have been several important studies on Jonathan Franzen’s work published in the past few years, especially after the commercial success of The Corrections, it seems there has not been any book-length study on the complexity of his artistic development yet. The title of Stephen J. Burn’s study of Jonathan Franzen’s fiction implies at least three things—that there is an end of postmodernism, that this book will be a study of Franzen’s latest works in the period of “the end of po...
Postmodernism and Education Postmodernism and Education
Vera Helena Gomes Wielewicki
Ilha do Desterro , 2008,
Abstract: How related are postmodernism and education? If we bear in mind the traditional concept of education, with sacralized institutions, like universities, imposing rules to be followed, no easy connection can be made with the postmodern moment. Fragmentation and inconsistency, ideas associated with postmodernism, do not seem to match education. Usher and Edwards are aware of the troublesome task they have settled themselves to.

An Exploration into the Concept of Postmodernism
Manzoor A. Khalidi
Market Forces , 2008,
Abstract: This paper is the first part of a series of two papers explaining the concept of postmodernism. The aim is to investigate into the concept of postmodern philosophical thought as a source of inspiration and ideas that may assist us in understanding the problems facing our society. The paper begins with the unravelling of the confusion surrounding the label of ‘postmodernism’ before beginning the exploration of the concept of postmodernism. The approach adopted for this exploration is to classify postmodernism into three distinct but interrelated concepts: one, postmodernism as an epoch; two, postmodernism as a signifier of the problematical features or the limits of modernity; and three, postmodernism as a reaction to or a departure from modernity. This paper investigates into the first two concepts of postmodernism. The third concept: ‘postmodernism as a reaction to or a departure from modernity’ has been introduced here but will be discussed in detail in the sequel to this paper to be published in a later

International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2011,
Abstract: Postmodernism does not have a standard definition. However, this paper tries to formulate the characteristics of postmodernism based on various ideas from some postmodernism figures. There are five characteristics of postmodernism which successfully formulated. Based on these five characteristics, this paper looks at the differences between postmodernism with its predecessor, that is modernism. In addition, this paper identifies that postmodernism is strongly influenced by the development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). This paper also tries to show the reciprocal relationship between postmodernism and ICTs. It can be argued that postmodernism is not only influenced by the development of ICTs, but also influence the development of ICTs. Specifically, this paper succeeded in showing the existence of the five characteristics of postmodernism on one of the emerging science in the ICTs, namely e-Government. There are two e-Government matters were observed, i.e. e-Government systems development process, and e-Government content delivery.

Faith, scholarship and postmodernism  [cached]
Susan VanZanten Gallagher
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1997, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v62i2.561
Abstract: Faith, Scholarship, and postmodernism Postmodernism represents perhaps the most important philosophical shift occurring in Western thought since the Enlightenment. It is thus crucial for Christian scholars to address the issues it raises. In the United States, Christian scholars have employed at least two different paradigms in discussing the relationship of faith and scholarship. In the integration model, scholars assume that faith and scholarship are two distinct entities that must be brought together, while the worldview model assumes that the scholar always begins with a narrative worldview that subsequently informs one's scholarship. However, the worldview model holds that one's worldview can be influenced and informed by one's scholarship, life experiences, and cultural settings as well. After distinguishing between various kinds of postmodernism based upon their views of truth, unknowability, and cultural relativism - this article argues that worldview thinking may benefit from the academy’s embrace of postmodernism. Although Christian scholars have expressed a wide variety of opinions on postmodernism, I argue that postmodernism’s anti-foundationalism and recognition of the importance of perspectival thinking provide new opportunities for Christian scholarship.
