”At a time when American academia is increasingly privileging ‘praxis’ over ‘theory,’ in fact, putting them in a binary opposition, and ‘leading intellectuals’ are announcing the ‘end of theory,’ I take great pleasure—and heart—knowing that the journal symplokē is resisting this regressive progressive momentum by remaining faithful to theory’s original revolutionary principle: that theory is a praxis.”

—William V. Spanos, Binghamton University

symplokē is a pioneer of eclectic crossdisciplinary research, addressing today’s post-humanist postmodern culture with critical theoretical vigor, especially with its landmark sequence of timely special topics numbers.”

—Vincent B. Leitch, University of Oklahoma

symplokē is one of the liveliest literary journals around, publishing work that’s consistently at the edge of current thinking.”

—John Frow, University of Edinburgh (UK)

”In a time of increasingly narrowing, U.S.-centered cultural and theoretical concerns, symplokē is one of the few literature / culture / theory journals that goes for the Big Picture...I always learn something from this journal.”

—Marjorie Perloff, Stanford University
