of Catalan Studies
internacional de catalanística
Since 1998 the Journal of Catalan Studies has been the only academic journal dedicated entirely to the promotion of Catalan Language and Culture via a totally electronic mode of publication. This year's number reflects the journal's commitment to all areas of Catalan Studies with a wide range of articles divided into three major sections: Contemporary Literature and Society; Language, Translation and Bibliography; and Performing and Visual Arts. In this the centenary year of the birth of Valencian philologist Manuel Sanchis Guarner, the edition is prefaced by a biography of the scholar by generous permission of the Associació d’Escriptors en Llengua Catalana: http://www.escriptors.cat/
The Editors are committed to
the widest dissemination for material published by the journal and,
as well as publishing on-line, they will continue to explore possibilities
for the occasional publication of the contents of the journal with
traditional presses. The pdf format employed means that articles published
look like their conventionally printed counterparts and can be referenced
like them, with download and printing also facilitated. Contributors
are eagerly invited to submit their work with a view to publication.
Articles submitted to the journal will continue
to be welcome in any language although the preferred media of the
review are Catalan and English.
