Journal of Romance Studies
Interdisciplinary Research in French, Hispanic, Italian and Portuguese Cultures
Aims & Scope

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.
One themed issue and two open issues 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.
