Chapter summaries of Said's Representations of the Intellectual
September 9, 2013 8:28 PM Subscribe
I'm teaching a university class and I've assigned the book Representations of the Intellectual
by Edward Said. I'm worried some of what Said says might be slightly over their heads and from past experience I know a handful of the students have learning disabilities and struggle with theoretical works. Does anyone know of an online source or short book/article that provides chapter summaries or at least breaks down his theories from these Reith Lectures? I wanted to provide a supplemental source to the students in case they don't quite get the points Said is trying to make.
