Thesis Eleven

Critical Theory and Historical Sociology

eISSN: 14617455 | ISSN: 07255136 | Current volume: 181 | Current issue: 1 Frequency: Bi-monthly

Thesis Eleven publishes theories and theorists, surveys, critiques, debates and interpretations. The journal also brings together articles on place, region, or problems in the world today, encouraging civilizational analysis and work on alternative modernities from fascism and communism to Japan and Southeast Asia. Marxist in origin, post-Marxist by necessity, the journal is vitally concerned with change as well as with tradition.

Since it was established, the journal has published the work of some of the world's leading theorists including Niklas Luhmann, Alain Touraine, Immanuel Wallerstein, Martin Jay, Richard Rorty and Agnes Heller.

International Coverage

The identity of the journal, like its location, is multiple: European in the continental sense, but also transatlantic and colonial. The journal translates European social theory, mainstream and marginal, and it also takes theory from the margins of the world system to the centres.

A Multidisciplinary Perspective

Thesis Eleven is multidisciplinary, reaching across the social sciences and liberal arts (sociology, anthropology, philosophy, geography, cultural studies, literature and politics) and cultivating a diversity of critical theories of modernity across both the German and French senses of critical theory.

Review Section

Each issue of the journal contains a review section including review articles and reviews of the latest publications in social theory.

Thesis Eleven (Thesis 11), peer reviewed and published quarterly, is multidisciplinary, reaching across the social sciences (sociology, anthropology, philosophy, geography, cultural studies, literature and politics) and cultivating diverse critical theories of modernity. Reflecting the broad scope of social theory it encourages civilizational analysis on a wide range of alternative modernities and takes critical theory from the margins of the world system to its centre.

Established in 1996 Thesis Eleven is a truly international and interdisciplinary peer reviewed journal. Innovative and authoritative the journal produces articles, reviews and debate with a central focus on theories of society, culture, and politics and the understanding of modernity.

 

The purpose of this journal is to encourage the development of social theory in the broadest sense. We view social theory as both multidisciplinary and plural, reaching across social sciences and liberal arts (sociology, anthropology, philosophy, politics, geography, cultural studies and literature) and cultivating a diversity of critical theories of modernity across both the German and French senses of critical theory.

 

The identity of the journal, like its location, is multiple: European in the continental sense, but also transatlantic and colonial. The journal translates European social theory, mainstream and marginal, and it also takes theory from the margins of the world system to the centres.

 

Social theory progresses through substantive concerns as well as formal or textural endeavour; the journal therefore publishes theories, and theorists, surveys, critiques, debates and interpretations, but also papers to do with place, region, or problems in the world today, encouraging civilizational analysis and work on alternative modernities from fascism and communism to Japan and Southeast Asia. Marxist in origin, post-Marxist by necessity, the journal is vitally concerned with change as well as with tradition.
