Aims & Scope

L’Indécis au Précis (IP) welcomes paper submissions that address—in humanities or arts-based disciplines—the varied aspects of francophone cultural and intellectual diversity. Studies may respond to the varied cultural concerns and processes of critical/theoretical inquiry that emerged in the French-speaking world during any historic period. Our scope is deliberately flexible in order to sustain an interdisciplinary dialogue, promote exchange between student scholars, and foreground the benefits of diverse undergraduate research. The journal seeks engaging papers that demonstrate an investment in original research and an intimate understanding of the author’s field of study. IP accepts papers that employ a syncretic approach and those that are discipline-specific. We encourage authors to offer fresh perspectives on ill-defined phenomena or recontextualize issues thought to be long-settled, thereby deconstructing the boundaries between the indeterminate (l’Indécis) and the determinate (le Précis). 

Submissions may be based in, but are not limited to, the following disciplines: language studies, cultural studies, art history, history, literature, philosophy, classics, anthropology, religious studies, linguistics, musicology, communication studies, gender studies, and others
