About this Collection

Mark Poster (1941-2012) was professor emeritus in History and Film and Media Studies at the University of California, Irvine. First hired in 1969, Poster played a central role in UCI's emergence as a leading center for work in Critical Theory. He helped launch the Critical Theory Institute, first as an informal reading group and then as a formal research center in 1987. He also served as director in its early years. In 2002 he became the founding chair of UCI's Department of Film and Media Studies.

The collection includes Mark Poster's research files, notes, and email correspondence related to his books and other publications, lectures, as well as his work with the Critical Theory Institute.

Mark Poster selected and transferred these files from his hard drive for the Critical Theory Archive at the UC Irvine Libraries. UC Irvine Libraries staff migrated most files to pdf/A format for long-term access. The collection is partially open to research. The files have metadata-only public access, please contact the contribution institution directly for full access.
