Abstract

The other has become a problem for postmodern cultural history. Speaking the singularity and difference of the other has become a problem for postmodern cultural history. Why? The answer which is most frequently given is that we live in hegemonic societies where disciplinary practices exclude otherness, preclude singularity and silence difference, and where we are inescapably caught in a net of language which speaks us. Another answer - an answer we rarely give and understandably seek to evade, the answer I will be exploring here - is that the newer kinds of cultural history (poststructuralist, cultural materialist, new historicist) are incapable of speaking singularity, because their premises and methods reduce everything and everyone to the Same.
