A New Article for Berfrois: “Derrida, Seinfeld, and Pop Tarts”


I recently wrote an essay for Berfrois that addresses the disparaging comments of Jacques Derrida – the  “father of deconstruction” – on Seinfeld.   Bringing together a Seinfeld joke about Pop Tarts and Derrida’s comments on things American, I show that Derrida’s problem with Seinfeld has deeper roots.   The “pop” – of Pop Tarts – may have been to “abrupt” for him…like many other American “actions.”
