Aims and scope

Études romanes de Brno (abbreviated as ERB) publishes original papers from Romance languages and literatures. Papers from Romance linguistics are dedicated to synchronic as well as diachronic aspects of Romance languages, applied linguistics of Romance languages and border disciplines that pay attention to Romance languages or to Romance languages in contact with other languages. In Romance literatures it focuses on history and current situation of Romance literatures and to Romance literatures and their reflection in dramas and films that according to their origin and cultural context belong to Romance languages speaking areas.

Every issue comprises various sections. The section “Dossier thématique” contains thematically linked papers on specific aspects of Romance languages or Romance literatures, the section “Études” includes original papers that are not necessarily thematically linked and the section “Comptes rendus” contains reviews on recent books that belong to the scope of interest of the journal. Articles in “Dossier thématique“ and “Études“ are peer-reviewed (for more, see Guidelines for authors).
