Aims & Scope

L’Indécis au Précis (IP) welcomes submissions addressing any topic on the cultural, intellectual, or social histories of the francophone world. Broadly, studies may respond to artistic, political, or theoretical developments within the French-speaking world during any historical moment. Our scope is deliberately flexible in order to sustain an interdisciplinary dialogue, promote exchange between student scholars, and share the benefits of diverse undergraduate research. 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 and to 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
