Reviews of Peer-Reviewed Journals in the Humanities and Social Sciences

We give you the scuttlebutt on academic journals—aiding you in selecting the right journal for publication—in reviews that are sometimes snarky, sometimes lengthy, always helpful. Written by Princeton University graduate students and Wendy Laura Belcher.

French Forum

For those interested in publishing articles on French and Francophone Literature and films of all periods but preferably post-1900.

Founded by Virginia and Raymond La Charité, French Forum is produced by the Department of Romance Languages at the University of Pennsylvania. They accept articles in English or French.  Although the journal is open to all periods and genres, in the last five years (2012-2017), there is a tendency to predominantly feature articles on the periods of the twentieth and  twenty-first centuries.  Occasionally, a handful of articles on the nineteenth century and a few on the eighteenth century appear.  The journal is a great source for scholarly articles on lesser known contemporary French/Francophone writers and filmmakers, as well as articles on post-colonial studies.  The journal welcomes all kinds of disciplines and approaches towards literary and film works.
