French Political Pamphlets

March 23, 2022 08:38 AM
Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah houses an important collection of political pamphlets printed in France during the period of the Religious Wars (1550) through the reign of Louis XIII (1643). A description of the holdings and an annotated bibliography of the pamphlets can be found online here.

The department of French and Italian at Brigham Young University solicits applications for a fellowship that will support a short-term residency allowing for on-site consultation of the pamphlets. The department will cover airfare, food, lodging and provide a $500 honorarium for a scholar to spend up to two weeks in Provo researching the collection.

Learn more about this opportunity and how to apply here.

Lingua Romana

Published since 2002 under the auspices of the Brigham Young University Department of French and Italian, Lingua Romana is a peer-reviewed academic journal (ISSN: 1551-4730) specializing in French, Italian and Romanian literature and culture. With each annual volume featuring scholarly articles and reviews of recent literary works, film/media, and secondary studies from these traditions, the journal also regularly publishes interviews with authors, filmmakers, and critics (including Ying Chen, Cheikh Hamidou Kane, Francis Veber, Ken Bugul, Gaëtan Brulotte, etc.).

Since 2017, each issue also includes a segment devoted to Outreach/Public Humanities to highlight humanistic study outside of the traditional academy. Lingua Romana welcomes article submissions, proposals for works to review as well as special topics for outreach/public humanities.
