Chiasma: A Site for Thought was established in September 2013 as an annual, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal for the generation and dispersion of theory. While recognizing ‘theory’ as a pursuit born of the crossing of continental philosophy, social and political theory, literary criticism, media studies, and cultural studies, Chiasma: A Site for Thought places emphasis on those genetic moments that displace theory from its history, without abandoning it to an auxiliary position between disciplines. The journal therefore aims at the affirmation of theory’s own powers to recombine and mutate the societal, historical, and academic coordinates from which it comes.
