Studies in Symbolic Interaction


Studies in Symbolic Interaction (SSI) is an ISI listed serial that locates current symbolic interactionist thought and provides contemporary readings of social situations. The papers are longer than the average journal article allowing more scope for expansion and development. To reflect the wide range of perspectives in symbolic interactionism, SSI draws on many interpretative resources including:
  • Post-structuralism 
  • Reconstructivism 
  • Performativity 
  • Critical race theory 
  • Feminist theory 
  • Posthumanism 
  • Materials theory 
  • Post-colonialism 
  • Affective theories 
  • Queer theory
