The Institute has a well-established publications programme, comprising several book and lecture series and the Journal of Romance Studies.
The latest addition to its portfolio is ‘igrs books’, a new book series in Modern Languages (French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and comparative studies), of which the first six volumes are now available. The series comprises monographs, conference volumes or thematically-linked collections of essays, with titles selected by annual competition.
The Journal of Romance Studies promotes innovative critical work in the areas of linguistics, literature, performing and visual arts, media, material culture, intellectual and cultural history, critical and cultural theory, psychoanalysis, gender studies, social sciences, and anthropology. Two monographic issues and one open issue are published each year. The primary focus is on those parts of the world that speak, or have spoken, French, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese but work on other cultures is included. Most issues cross national and disciplinary boundaries in order to stimulate new ways of thinking about cultural history and practice.
Orders should be placed direct with Berghahn Journals.
