The French Review welcomes short pieces for a Special Section on:

L’enseignement du français après la pandémie

This Special section is intended as a follow up to the two Special Sections on “L’enseignement aux temps de la pandémie” published in December 2020 and March 2021. As most of us are back face-to-face, how have our teaching practices, conditions, students, etc. been permanently changed by the pandemic at all levels (K-12 as well as college/university teachers) and in all settings? Members are encouraged to submit short pieces (1,000–2,500 words) to share personal experiences as well as address broader professional issues about how they are addressing the new normal and challenges. Deadlines for submission: December 15, 2023 and January 15, 2024.

The French Review Book Series (on pause until further notice)

This book series publishes scholarly works in the field of French and Francophone Studies, in the form of authored or edited volumes written in French and/or English. The scope of the book series will cover most of the rubrics of the French Review: Literature, Film, Society and Culture, Linguistics, Focus on the Classroom, Professional Issues. However, this book series is not designed for textbooks or other pedagogical materials. Nor is it designed for creative works (novels, collections of poetry or short stories, etc.).

The objective of the French Review Book Series is not to generate a revenue stream, but to provide the means for scholars to publish worthy projects, which are mainly distributed to university libraries. The print runs are small, and authors do not receive royalties. Authors or editors of published books will receive five free copies.

To be considered for publication, authors or editors should submit a detailed project proposal: a table of contents; an introduction and/or sample chapter; a succinct bibliography; a statement indicating how the book would contribute to current scholarship and what the potential readership would be.

As is the case for the French Review, AATF membership is a requirement, for all authors and editors, for publication in the book series. The technical specifications of the books (softcover, size, font, etc.) will be similar to those of our journal.

For general formatting requirements, consult our Guide for Authors. Detailed project proposals should be sent to the Editor in Chief (
