Social Text is an academic journal published by Duke University Press. Since its inception as an independent editorial collective in 1979, Social Text has addressed a wide range of social and cultural phenomena, covering questions of gender, sexuality, race, and the environment. Each issue covers subjects in the debates around feminism, Marxism, neoliberalism, postcolonialism, postmodernism, queer theory, and popular culture. Some notable contributors in its earliest years were Fredric Jameson, Cornel West, Andrew Ross, Judith Butler, Laura Kipnis, Ellen Willis, Edward Said, Stanley Aronowitz, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. The journal has since been run by different collectives over the years, mostly based in New York City universities. It has maintained an avowedly progressive political orientation and scholarship over these years, if also a less and less socialist or Marxist one from the days of Jameson, Aronowitz et al.
