w-s critique of po-mo

Among my peers (I am a Ph.D. candidate in history), postmodern theory
is the rage. Culture, gender, the body, and the psyche are
preferred topics whose treatment seems to ignore social-economic
foundations. I feel most comfortable with Marxist-Braudel-Wallerstein
style, yet I appreciate much about my peers' approach. I would like to
hear w-s critiques of postmodernism in order to have a better idea about
its merits and pitfalls. Also, could anyone recommend an article
critiquing postmodernism from a w-s perspective?
