A New Voice For Structuralist Research

In its heyday in the 1960s, “structuralism” was one of the most influential movements in the human and social sciences.  That influence, however, was always contentious and waned as soon as the early 1970s. Since then, structuralism has attracted rather sporadic attention, usually focused on specific figures such as Ferdinand de Saussure, Claude Lévi-Strauss or Roland Barthes. It has also been dismissed as a coherent, productive method and relegated instead to the status of a passing “fad”. Against this background, the aim of Acta Structuralica is to provide a strong venue where research on all aspects of structuralism can aggregate and coalesce into renewed approaches and coherent perspectives on what, we firmly believe, is still a foundational paradigm.
