John Prescott awarded PhD in Linguistics

John Prescott, the former Deputy Prime Minister has been awarded a PhD for his work on Literary Theory and Linguistics ten years after starting it. Said Prescott, "Being at the core of the cathartic renaissance of Labour as New Labour precipitated my putting the academic work on hold, but I am very pleased to say I completed it".

Here is a sample of Dr Prescott's research work:

The Dialectic of Reality: Socialist realism in the works of Polly Toynbee

John Prescott

Department of English, University of California, (near) Berkeley

1. Toynbee and dialectic deappropriation

If one examines the subcapitalist paradigm of narrative, one is faced with a choice: either reject socialist realism or conclude that culture serves to exploit the proletariat, given that language is distinct from narrativity. Sontag uses the term ‘the subcapitalist paradigm of narrative’ to denote the role of the poet as writer.

It could be said that Lyotard suggests the use of socialist realism to modify society. Baudrillard uses the term ‘the precapitalist paradigm of expression’ to denote the bridge between class and society.

In a sense, several theories concerning the subcapitalist paradigm of narrative exist. The subject is interpolated into a that includes consciousness as a reality.

Well done, John
