The Editors of French Historical Studies are soliciting articles for a special issue on France and Islam. Papers on research topics covering all chronological periods from the medieval to the present are welcome. The editors would be especially pleased to consider submissions from the medieval and early modern periods as recent trends have meant that these periods are not always as well represented as the modern and post-colonial periods. The aim is to have a series of articles that cover the chronological spectrum. We understand "France" in the broadest way, including the medieval Frankish kingdoms, the Crusaders and Crusader states, and those people who called themselves "Franks" and were called by Muslims "Ifranj/Firanj."
The framework of the issue will rest on three considerations, namely:
RELATIONS between France and Islamic countries
ENCOUNTERS AND RESPONSES of France or the French to Islam or of Islamic countries or Muslims to France or the French
INFLUENCES of Islam or Islamic countries on France or on French communities and French influences on Islamic countries or on Islamic culture
There are no thematic preferences and the editors encourage scholars to submit any topic they feel would fit into the general framework of the issue.
Queries regarding potential submissions and all other inquiries should be addressed to the guest editors, Patricia Lorcin and Paula Sanders firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Articles can be either in English or in French but should conform to French Historical Studies stylistic guidelines
(see http://fhs.ucdavis.edu/style.shtml for details).
Manuscripts can be sent electronically to the Managing Assistant of French Historical Studies, Eteica Spencer at the following e-mail address:
Manuscripts can be sent by mail to Eteica Spencer,
