LUP to publish the Journal of Romance Studies from 2017

Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce that from 2017, it will be publishing the Journal of Romance Studies on behalf of the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR).

The Journal of Romance Studies (JRS) promotes innovative critical work in the areas of linguistics, literature, performing and visual arts, media, material culture, intellectual and cultural history, critical and cultural theory, psychoanalysis, gender studies, social sciences and anthropology.
One themed issue and two open issues are published each year. The primary focus is on those parts of the world that speak, or have spoken, French, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese, but work on other cultures is also included. Articles published in the journal cross national and disciplinary boundaries in order to stimulate new ways of thinking about cultural history and practice.

Anthony Cond, Managing Director at LUP, said “Liverpool University Press and the Institute of Modern Languages Research share a commitment to support the Modern Languages community.  As a leading international publisher in the field, we are delighted to partner with the IMLR in publication of the Journal of Romance Studies.”

Catherine Davies, General Editor of the journal said, “LUP is a prize-winning, top rate academic publisher. It specialises in Modern Languages publications and IMLR is proud to be associated with the press. We look forward to a flurry of activity around the promotion of the JRS and welcome LUP’s interest. Together, the IMLR and LUP will take the JRS in new and exciting directions.”
