Contemporary French Civilization, a journal devoted to all aspects of civilization and cultural studies in France and the Francophone world, has been published by Liverpool University Press since 2011, publishing 4 issues a year since 2016.  

CFC continues to provide an informative and stimulating interdisciplinary forum for scholars wishing to share their knowledge and insights with a broad, diversified audience.  

The journal publishes articles, essays, and notes; book reviews of the latest works of interest; and information on the arts and a variety of aspects of French and Francophone cultures. Material may appear in either French or English. CFC is part of LUP's growing list of journals in the field, including Australian Journal of French Studies (edited by Professor Brian Nelson) and Francosphères (edited by Professor Andrew Hussey). LUP also publishes the influential Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures book series and an annual for the Society for Francophone Postcolonial Studies.
