French Literature Series
Series edited by Jeff Persels
Since 1973 the French Literature Series has been published in conjunction with the annual French Literature Conference, sponsored by the Department of French and Classics of the University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina, USA. In addition to the scholarly papers selected for publication by the Editorial Board, it also accepts notes on the conference topic.
The conference, which is scheduled for the end of March or beginning of April each year, focuses on a pre-announced topic. The deadline for submitting conference papers is November 1; for scholarly notes, the following May 1. Submissions should be prepared according to the MLA Handbook and should not exceed fifteen pages (25 lines per page, double-spacing, with ample margins). Reading time at the Conference is limited to twenty minutes. Scholarly notes should not exceed eight typed pages. Authors should submit two copies of their contribution accompanied by return postage if they wish their paper to be returned.
The essays appearing in the French Literature Series are drawn primarily from the Conference papers. Authors are informed of the inclusion of their papers in the volume when their papers are accepted for the Conference. Exceptionally, French Literature Series does publish outstanding contributions from authors not participating in the Conference. Such essays to be considered for inclusion in the volume should not exceed twenty typed pages. A style sheet is available upon request.
All communications concerning the Conference should be addressed to the Conference Director, and those concerning the French Literature Series to the Series Editor.
