Published by the French programme at the University of Western Australia, Essays in French Literature and Culture is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal with an international Editorial Board and Advisory Board.
Essays in French Literature was founded in 1963 by the late James R. Lawler, as a medium for scholarly articles in French or English relating to French Literature.
Published once a year, with its almost sixty years of existence, Essays is one of the longest-running French studies journals in the world.
In 2005, the journal expanded its name to Essays in French Literature and Culture (EFLAC) as a way to open its pages to contemporary worldwide currents in French and francophone studies.
Contributions are subjected to a double-blind peer review followed by a final editorial review.
Each of the journal’s yearly issues covers a particular theme relevant to French and Francophone literature and cultures, and reflecting current intellectual, cultural and literary debates. Guest Editors are welcome to suggest a theme to the Editorial Board.
Essays also includes a Miscellaneous section for contributions of note, not fitting in with the issue’s theme and, occasionally, we publish creative pieces such as poetry or interviews.
The journal is offered in print (AUD22 plus postage cost) as well as, for recent issues, electronically in Open Access (free for authors and readers).
Essays in French Literature and Culture is available on Informit, Ebsco and Proquest, and indexed on Thompson Index.
