In Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism(1990), Jameson theorized postmodernism as the cataclysmic absorption of aesthetic creation by commodity production. Jameson has written numerous theoretical texts, including The Political Unconscious (1981) and Marxism and Form (1971). His work has been recognized with Guggenheim fellowships, the 2008 Holberg Prize, and the 2011 MLA Lifetime Achievement Award. Jameson spoke at The Kitchen in 1980 on technological reproduction and mass communication through television for the panel series "Society, Television, and Art."
