New Books in French Studies is a New Books Network podcast series that I launched in 2013.

 



If you’re an author with a new or forthcoming book who might be interested in an interview, or if you’re a listener with a recent title to suggest, please send me an email. I am always interested in hearing about recent titles by scholars from across the disciplines whose work deals with any aspect of the history, politics, and culture of France and its empire. All time periods are welcome!

If you have questions about how the interview/podcast process works, check these New Books in French Studies Interview FAQs.
