Featuring mini-essays, blog posts, and cultural analyses selected and edited by students, The Student Theorist provides fresh and personal insights into pertinent theories that can all too often end up explicated in dried up and complex ways. The purpose of this handbook is to provide accessible introductions to theoretically robust debates and concepts, while also revealing the enduring and urgent relevance of theory in our world.

This book has been almost entirely created by undergraduate students and recent alums at Plymouth State University. This file represents the state of the work at the end of 2018. Visit to see new and updated material.
