Journal of Romance Studies

Interdisciplinary Research in French, Hispanic, Italian and Portuguese Cultures

Aims & Scope

Visit the new Journal of Romance Studies website here!

Published in association with the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London

The Journal of Romance Studies (JRS) 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.
