Articles which emphasize historical, cultural, practical, or literary aspects or which feature interdisciplinary or comparative subjects are particularly welcome. The journal encourages articles focusing on primary sources or barely known documents, as well as those that apply theoretical and critical approaches. Articles can be submitted either in French or English. A special issue will include eight to twelve contributions.
