The Editorial Board of Nineteenth-Century French Studies is pleased to announce the publication of volume 52 numbers 3–4 (Spring–Summer 2024). The issue includes a range of articles and reviews that highlight the breadth of the discipline: from the abolition of the slave trade, the fantastic, sexual politics, and hospitality to pessimism, Richard Wagner, alternative energy sources, and Jane de la Vaudère. As such, it continues the journal’s longstanding tradition of covering the full range of studies of nineteenth-century French literature and related fields.
