Journal of French Language Studies

The Journal of French Language Studies (Cambridge University Press) invites colleagues to submit proposals for a special thematic issue of the Journal, to be published in March 2020. The proposed issue may be structured as a set of themed articles, or as a keynote article with commentary responses.

Submissions will be expected to represent state-of-the-art research in a particular area and to this end should demonstrate that contributions are representative of current activity in the domain proposed.

Proposals must include the following information:
-Name(s) and affiliation(s) of the proposing/co-ordinating editor(s).
-Theme of the special issue
-A description, in no more than 250 words, of the research context of the topics to be covered, and the rationale for a thematic issue in this subject area that clearly delineates the theoretical framework and research significance of the topic. Care should be taken to clearly describe the specific focus of the special issue and to demonstrate how each article contributes to the overall coherence of the theme.
-Names of contributing authors, their affiliations, the titles of their articles and brief abstracts (around 150 words). Where individual abstracts make contradictory claims, a brief explanation of how this contributes to an overall understanding of the theme should be outlined. Note that graduate students are eligible to serve as authors/co-authors.
-A brief glossary of any specialist technical terms not in common usage.
-An overall list of references.

Please note that we are unlikely to consider proposals too closely related to areas covered in recent or forthcoming thematic issues, as follows:
2010: French in a cross-cultural pragmatics context
2011: Regards croisés sur la prosodie du français
2012: First language acquisition of French grammar (from 0 to 4)
2013: L'hypothèse d'une diglossie en France
2014: Negation and Clitics in French and Romance: What kind of interaction?
2015: La diachronie du français : Etudes de marqueurs verbaux du TAM
2016: Les modalisateurs émergents en français contemporain
2017: La liaison en français: normes, usages, acquisition
2018: Language Innovation in Paris
2019: Langues régionales and variation: models and methods

Proposals should be sent by email, to arrive by 1st April 2018 to:
Professor Julia Herschensohn
Co-ordinating Editor of JFLS
