A publication of the French Association for American Studies (AFEA), Transatlantica is an independent biannual peer-reviewed journal. Founded in 2001, Transatlantica combines a commitment to rigorous scholarship with a vital concern for critical exchange in the field of American studies broadly defined. Developing a variety of theoretical and disciplinary orientations, the journal welcomes articles in literature, cultural studies, social sciences (history, political science, sociology…), and theory. Contributions are published in French or English. The journal’s on-line presence also offers opportunities for original multimedia presentation alongside scholarly articles. A typical issue of Transatlantica is divided into one or two thematic dossiers, and also includes a varia section, a book review section, extensive reviews of arts and academic events, and interviews with writers and/or artists. Transatlantica maintains a policy of full-text open access. Article submissions are regularly reviewed by readers outside the editorial committee and France.
