Theory, Culture & Society - Special Issue on Complexity

Text Box: Theory, Culture & Society Special Issue on Complexity

Thought this new special issue might be of interest to people following mobilities:

Theory, Culture & Society is at the cutting edge of recent developments in social and cultural theory. The journal has helped to break down some of the disciplinary barriers between the humanities and the social sciences by opening up a wide range of new questions in cultural theory. Theory, Culture & Society builds upon the heritage of the classic founders of social theory and examines the ways in which this tradition has been reshaped by a new generation of theorists.
