About the French Review

The French Review is the official journal of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF) and has the largest circulation of any scholarly journal of French and Francophone studies in the world. It is distributed online and in print by Johns Hopkins University Press. 

The French Review is published four times a year (October, December, March, and May). Every year, we publish (in English and French) approximately 30 articles and 200 reviews on French and Francophone literature, cinema, culture, linguistics, and pedagogy. Special features include:

October issue: Le roman (William Cloonan); L’année poétique (Maryann De Julio); Le bloc-notes culturel (Matthieu Dalle).

March issue: Bilan cinématographique (Nathalie Degroult, Michèle Bissière et Marie-Line Brunet).

In May, every other year, a special issue is devoted to special topics such as: Martinique et Guadeloupe, Québec, Francophone cinema, Belgique, Pedagogy, Francophonie(s), France-Algérie, Les Lumières, Professional Issues, Présences féminines, etc.
