About this Journal

Founded in 1961, Nottingham French Studies publishes articles in English and French and themed special numbers covering all of the major fields of the discipline – literature, culture, postcolonial studies, gender studies, film and visual studies, translation, thought, history, politics, linguistics – and all historical periods from medieval to the 21st century. The journal’s Editorial Board is composed of the members of the Department of French and Francophone studies at the University of Nottingham, supported by an international Advisory Board. Through the publication of general and special numbers covering a range of thematic and theoretical perspectives, the journal aims to represent established as well as new and emerging areas of research in the field of French studies.
