full name / name of organization:
Profils américains, Université Paul Valéry-Montpellier 3, France
Call for monographs, single-author or multiple-author projects
Profils américains online, a new online journal, will be launched shortly by the Presses Universitaires de la Méditerranée (P.U.L.M.) of the University Paul Valéry-Montpellier III.
Started as Profils américains in 1991 by Professors Michel Bandry, Yves Carlet and Paul Carmignani, the printed series of the journal published 21 multiple-author monographs on American writers.
(Further details are available at:

In 2010, Profils américains became a part of « Horizons Anglophones,» a series of the Presses Universitaires de la Méditerranée. Three more monographs have been published since, while three others are at various stages of completion – on Patti Smith, Tim Burton and Frank O’Hara, respectively. The latter reflect our editorial board’s recent decision to open Profils américains to all fields of artistic creation across North America.
In order to ensure the faster publication of monographs submitted to us, it was our wish to continue the journal as an online annual or semi-annual publication, while at the same time maintaining Profils américains as a series within “Horizons Anglophones” intended primarily for non-monographic multi-author or single-author work in well-identified fields of English studies.
As we launch the online journal (with hard copies available through “print on demand”), we now wish to welcome new suggestions for its future issues. These may be already-completed single-author or multiple-author monographic projects looking for a publishing venue or suggestions for future projects of this type.
Manuscripts and projects should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for prompt examination by our editorial board.
