Nineteenth-century French studies opens out onto multiple fields of enquiry and areas of knowledge. Dix-Neuf’s interdisciplinary focus reflects this and seeks to promote wide-ranging critical and theoretical debate. Since methods of working and of sharing ideas have undergone radical transformations over the last decade, this new publication looks forward in terms of its mode of delivery. Dix-Neuf capitalises on the possibilities of e-publishing, with all the advantages that it offers, while maintaining the traditional hallmarks of good scholarship – thorough refereeing, meticulous editing, rigorously enforced standards of presentation and referencing. The Journal provides a forum for cutting-edge research in nineteenth-century French and francophone studies in all relevant disciplines, and we welcome submissions from researchers working on the literature, history, philosophy, culture, society, art, music, fashion and journalism of the period.
Dix-Neuf was established as an e-journal in 2003, and since 2010 has been part of the catalogue of Maney Publishing and available online through IngentaConnect. The Journal publishes 3 numbers per year (March, July and November), increasing to 4 numbers per year from 2014. Full tables of contents of articles published can be accessed on the IngentaConnect website here.
In addition to publishing ‘open’ numbers each year, the Journal also publishes at least one annual themed issue, often with a guest editor. Recent ‘Special Issues’ have been devoted to Flânerie and the Senses (Guest Editor: Aimée Boutin), Flaubert: Shifting Perspectives (Guest Editors: Anne Green, Mary Orr and Tim Unwin), Banville (Guest Editor: David Evans) and State of the Union: Marriage in Nineteenth-Century France (Guest Editors: Rachel Mesch and Masha Belenky).
The editors welcome individual article submissions and proposals for future special numbers of the Journal (these should include a brief outline of the proposed number and a list of intended contributors). Submissions and proposals should be e-mailed to Nigel Harkness and Nick White.
