Arthur and Marilouise Kroker were founders and editors of the Canadian Journal of Political and Social Theory (CJPST), in 1976 at the University of Winnipeg.

In 1993 Arthur and Marilouise Kroker relaunched the journal in electronic format on the Internet under the name CTHEORY: Theory, Technology and Culture (http://ctheory.net/ctheory_wp/home/).
