Journal of Romance Studies
Interdisciplinary Research in French, Hispanic, Italian and Portuguese Cultures
Aims & Scope
Published in Association with the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London.
The Journal of Romance Studies promotes innovative critical work in the areas of linguistics, literature, performing and visual arts, media, material culture, intellectual and cultural history, critical and cultural theory, psychoanalysis, gender studies, social sciences, and anthropology.
Two monographic issues and one open issue are published each year. The primary focus is on those parts of the world that speak, or have spoken, French, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese but work on other cultures is also included. Articles published in the journal cross national and disciplinary boundaries in order to stimulate new ways of thinking about cultural history and practice.
