Contributions to Sections

Contributions to the following journal sections are also welcome:

The Library Section welcomes crossed reviews on books recently published and sharing a common issue. Contributors can also submit reflexions on the history and reception of key works in the various disciplines and fields covered by the journal. Provided they offer researchers, whose works have acted as landmarks for the production and reception of symbolic goods, a means of questioning their intellectual affiliations and life stories, interviews of such researchers can also be submitted.

In the Research in Translation Section, translators, culture professionals, academics or researchers used to working with different languages are invited to explain their translation choices, ways of doing things, with added reflexivity. Such contributions will thus provide further ground for thought to one of the key issues dealt with by the journal: The transnational circulation of texts and ideas.

In the Classroom and Beyond Section papers and documents on teaching and how social science results on culture and ideas circulate outside the academic world and are being publicly discussed. Papers should expose the narratives and analyses of in-class teaching experiences so as to help develop didactic methods linked to specific works and audiences: students, mainstream audiences, artists, cultural mediators, etc.

Biens symboliques / Symbolic Goods is not only addressing culture professionals it widely opens up the journal to them through its On the Job Section. This section welcomes papers, interviews or round tables dedicated to professional practices in the arts, sciences or cultural mediation and outreach.

Two types of papers can be submitted to the Perspectives Section: Studies or articles on approaches developed abroad in the social sciences on arts, culture or intellectual life and which remain little known; the first results of studies being carried out by researchers who work at the crossroads of different disciplines.

Finally, the Open Science section, set up in the context of the Open-SHS project (supported by the French Ministry of Research and Higher education), is intended to report on the issues involved in opening up scientific publications: open access, economic model, national and international policies, open peer review practices, new publication models, multilingualism, etc. Following on from the Open-SHS seminar (2022-2023), the articles will provide feedback on concrete ways of applying the principles of open science, as well as positions on these issues and the various ways of responding to them.
