Études françaises

Managing editor(s): Stéphane Vachon



Established in 1965 in the Department of French Studies (renamed in 2003 Department of Literatures in French Language) at the University of Montreal, Études françaises is a literary critics and theory journal addressing an international readership, its mandate encompassing the whole of French-language literatures history and territory.

Open to dialogues with other discourses – arts, media, history, social sciences and humanities – it often adopts interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives. For over thirty years, the emergence in its issues of new problematics did not break up with the humanist spirit that presided over its foundation: the promotion of the literary text study set in the cultural history context.

Études françaises publishes three issues annually, composed of a “File” promoting an in-depth reflection around a problematics and of free articles, the “Reading Exercises”, reporting the diversity of the current works and providing an essential place for the diffusion of the emerging research. It addresses the specialists in French, Quebec and francophone literature and anybody interested in literature.
