French and Francophone Studies
proposes to extend French Studies beyond traditional limits. Inviting
all critical approaches on the latest debates in French Studies (cultural
studies, francophone studies, autobiography, media studies, etc.), the
journal provides a forum not only for academics, but for journalists,
artists, filmmakers, and writers of fiction and poetry as well. Containing
interviews, articles, fiction and poetry, each issue features contributors
from across the disciplines. From 5 to 10% of a given issue is in French;
the remaining contents are either in English or bilingual form.

objective of Contemporary French and Francophone Studies is to
reflect the enormous vitality and variety displayed by those engaged

John Taylor's review of SITES in the Times Literary Supplement
(Nov. 19, 2000):
has a "contagious enthusiasm with which this attractively
designed journal participates in contemporary debates concerning
is an important and stimulating review whose next issues will
be impatiently awaited."
Célestin and Eliane DalMolin, the Editors of Sites,
feistily combat the idée reçue that 'nothing has
happened in French literature for a long time.'"
the three issues on "Writing in French in the 90s: Novelists
and Poets: "An excellent feature... are the often extensive
essays on - or in depth interviews with - most of the novelists
and poets. In all, numerous literary approaches are represented,
and the selection justifies the Editor's claim that French literature
has remained challenging and compelling from 1950 to 1990, a period
during which - according to the standard, narrow, over-simplifying
explanation - Sartre's littérature engagée yielded
to the New Novel."
OUT why Contemporary French and Francophone Studies has
become the most exciting journal published in the field today...
