Transatlantica (electronic journal): 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 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.

RFEA: The Revue Française d’Études Américaines (RFEA), a double-blind peer-reviewed quarterly journal, was established in 1976. It is an official publication of the Association Française d’Études Américaines (AFEA) (the French Association of American Studies). While it focuses on the United States, it also regularly adopts trans-Atlantic and transnational perspectives.
The RFEA is a bilingual (French and English) journal that publishes original manuscripts. It addresses a wide array of questions in literature, the social sciences, philosophy, and art—especially the visual arts. Most issues focus on a special theme but may also include articles on other subjects. Approximately every two years, an issue is entirely composed of articles on a diversity of subjects. Book reviews are always included and, occasionally, there are also historiographical essays or critical essays on recently published books, interviews, or illustrations. Four issues are published each year, three of which are 128 pages in length, and the fourth is a double issue (256 pages) that offers a selection of papers presented at the annual AFEA conference.
