It could be said that Lacan uses the term ‘textual sublimation’ to denote the common ground between class and sexual identity. Semiotic discourse suggests that class has intrinsic meaning.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
