Early Modern French Studies

Early Modern French Studies (formerly Seventeenth-Century French Studies) publishes high-quality, peer-reviewed, original articles in English and French on a broad range of literary, cultural, methodological, and theoretical topics relating to the study of early modern France.

The journal has expanded its historical scope and now covers work on the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. Within this period of French literary and cultural history, the journal particularly welcomes work that relates to the term ‘early modern’, as well as work that interrogates it. It continues to publish special issues devoted to particular topics as well as individual submissions.

Early Modern French Studies journal cover

Early Modern French Studies brings to its readership the work of both established figures and young researchers, and has historically provided a unique forum for the strong UK tradition of scholarship in the field. The journal is the official publication of the Society for Early Modern French Studies and was first published in 1979. Since then, the journal’s increasingly broad and inclusive stance has widened to include the full range of early modern artistic, musical, philosophical, scientific, political, and material concerns. Interdisciplinary in its interests and international in its scope, the journal continues to encourage contributions from throughout the UK, the US, France, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey, and the Republic of Ireland, among others.
