The SCE, North America's
oldest scholarly organization devoted to theory, is launching
its third decade of research, discussion, and publication with
special emphasis on interdisciplinary research and on exploring
the potential for critical discussion within electronic media.
Its various projects, conferences, and symposia serve to advance
the role of theory in academic and intellectual arenas, and encompass
a broad spectrum of disciplines, including literary studies,
legal studies and practices, economics, composition and pedagogy.
The Society's primary mission is to foster discussion, and this
website will become, we hope, one of the prominent features of
those discussions. The Society continues to grow--it now has
over 900 members--and we believe that out of such strength in
numbers will come even more exciting and important projects.
We invite you to join in its endeavors for what promises to be
an exciting and turbulent decade.
