Lingua Franca (magazine)


Lingua Franca (magazine)

"Lingua Franca" was an American magazine about intellectual and literary life in academia. It was where the Sokal Affair was first revealed and its editors later published a book ("The Sokal Hoax") of selected papers on the subject.

The magazine ceased publication in the 2001 economic downturn. The following year, editor Alexander Star published the collection "Quick Studies: The Best of Lingua Franca".
