CFC Intersections is an exciting new daughter journal which builds on the success of highly regarded Contemporary French Civilization (CFC). CFC Intersections aims to provide a new publishing outlet for scholarship related to intersectionality and the broader associated notion of intersections in French and Francophone studies.
The journal's interests will focus on intersectionality and how it has come to inform the lives of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour), the working class, LGBTQ communities, people with disabilities, and those in other marginalised and minoritised groups, including among others Africana and Black studies, anthropology, cultural studies as well as gender, sexuality and queer studies, literary studies, sociology, and social work.
The journal will allow us to highlight the value of contemporary literary, sociolinguistic, ethnographic, cinematic, and other forms of cultural production informed by the complex intersections of identities that impact the everyday lives of people living throughout the French-speaking world.
CFC Intersections aims to ensure contributions from researchers -- working in postcolonial, transnational, translingual, and other contexts -- who may already be studying the Francophone world from an intersectional perspective without necessarily recognising it or being recognised as such.
The journal will publish articles in English and French.
To launch CFC Intersections, we are pleased to organise the first conference and consider for publication a first set of papers from this event.
The Inaugural Virtual Conference will take place between 24-25th September 2021.
