One of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century, Claude Lévi-Strauss casts a long shadow over many areas of inquiry, from ethnology and cultural anthropology to literary studies, Marxist theory, and religious studies. In recent years, interest in his work has experienced a renaissance. Both commemorating and reassessing his work, this issue of Yale French Studies demonstrates how Levi-Strauss’s thought can be considered from a multiplicity of perspectives, and the essays in the collection portray him as a vibrant presence in a wide variety of contemporary discussions.

Robert Doran is James P. Wilmot Assistant Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the University of Rochester.
