Nineteenth-Century French Studies vol. 48 n. 3–4 (Spring–Summer 2020)

The Editorial Board of Nineteenth-Century French Studies is pleased to announce the publication of volume 48 numbers 3–4 (Spring–Summer 2020). In addition to a roundtable Incipit dialogue on gender studies edited by Rachel Mesch, the issue includes a range of articles and reviews that highlight the breadth of the discipline: from smoke and mirrors, needles and pens, prehistoric bodies, barbarism, antisemitism, and bibliophilia to Hugo, the American West, mass violence, and the voice of the reader. As such, it continues the journal’s longstanding tradition of covering the full range of studies of nineteenth-century French literature and related fields.
