Classic and Contemporary French Translations

Columbia University Press has published a range of classic and contemporary works by world-renowned French historians, philosophers, religious studies scholars, and social theorists such as Roland Barthes, Jacques Derrida, Pierre Bourdieu, Hélène Cixous, Gilles Deleuze, and Julia Kristeva. A core goal of our European Perspectives and other series is to introduce the Francophone thinkers who have greatly influenced contemporary theory to an English-speaking audience.
