“Francosphères,” now an open-access journal 


Liverpool University Press has just announced that the journal Francosphères will now be available at the Open Library of Humanities. Francosphères is a highly respected journal devoted to transcultural and intercultural French Studies. 

The latest issue—July 2018, Vol. 7, Issue 1—includes articles such as “Entendez-vous dans nos campagnes,” by Étienne Achille; “La poésie contemporaine comme défi à la francophonie et à la Négritude,” by Carolina Cunha Carnier; “Negotiating Martinican identity amid French universalism,” by Maya Angela Smith; “Comment écrire en évitant d’exotiser le malheur?,” by Nathan H. Dize; and “Towards transcolonial francophone connections,” by Jonathan Lewis.

DescriptionFrancosphères is a highly respected journal devoted to transcultural and intercultural French Studies edited by an international team based in Paris, Oxford and London. Established in 2012 to support recent advances in postcolonial and gender theory, the journal has been publishing articles in English and French that seek to explore and interrogate the presence of French language and culture across frontiers and borders and how this is legitimated in ‘Francophone’ culture.

Independent peer review of the journal’s application to join the OLH platform reported that the journal offers “a unique and timely perspective on French and Francophone studies that has been providing a venue for excellent scholarship over the past five years.”
