Thesis Eleven


About us

Thesis Eleven encourages multidisciplinary research across the social sciences and liberal arts. The journal is European in the continental sense but also transatlantic and colonial. It translates European social theory and takes theory from the world system to the centres. It encourages social-historical and civilizational analysis of Japan and Southeast Asia, Byzantium and Islam, and works on alternative modernities from fascism and communism to hellenism and social democracy.

The purpose of this journal is to encourage the development of social theory in the broadest sense. Established in 1980, Thesis Eleven has a rich publication history of essays featuring authors such as Zygmunt Bauman, Cornelius Castoriadis, S.N. Eisenstadt, Marcel Gauchet, Agnes Heller, Niklas Luhmann, Alain Touraine, Jean-Pierre Vernant, Pierre Vidal-Naquet, Immanuel Wallerstein, Michel Wieviorka, and other social, social-historical, philosophical, and political thinkers. It continues to publish new and important works from leading scholars and outstanding junior researchers, shifting to six issues per year from 2012.
