Anthem symplokē Studies in Theory presents highly readable and relevant monographs which focus on both the uses of critical theory and how critical theory works. Books in this series adhere to a vision of theory that is rigorous yet accessible, cutting edge but not obscure, and metaprofessionally committed but not doctrinaire. Focused around the five key themes of comparative theory, metaprofessional studies, interdisciplinary theory, key concepts in contemporary theory, and key figures in contemporary theory, this series will examine contemporary critical theory that is at the edge of current thinking and sets the theoretical agenda for the future in the humanities.
