Name of creator
Arthur and Marilouise Kroker are writers, lecturers, and editors in the area of technology and contemporary culture. Arthur Kroker studied at McMaster University where he received a Ph.D. in political science in 1975. In 1975 he became an assistant professor, and in 1980, an associate professor at the University of Winnipeg. He joined Concordia University's Political Science Department in 1981 as associate professor. In 1988, he was appointed professor of political science.
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. They and the CJPST moved to Concordia University in 1981. The aim of the CJPST is to provide a gathering-point for political, social and cultural theory, both in Canada and globally. It aims to synthesize theoretical reflection and analysis of the public situation, to mediate theory and contemporary history. 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/). Arthur and Marilouise Kroker were also publishers of the New Worlds Perspectives series of monographs in which they were editors of the CultureTexts Series.
