In this Issue
Sponsored by the French Colonial Historical Society (FCHS), French Colonial History is an annual volume of bilingual, refereed scholarly articles. The journal covers all aspects of French colonization and the history of all French colonies, reflecting the temporal span, geographical breadth, and diversity of subject matter that characterize the scholarly interests of the Society. The journal seeks submissions that present perspectives from around the world on French colonization and has a commitment to a critical appraisal of France's imperial past and its impact on the present world.
French Colonial Historyis an outgrowth of the Society's ongoing relationship with Michigan State University Press, which began with the Press's publication of the 1995 FCHS Proceedings. In 2001, it turned into a journal and is no longer dependent on the Society’s annual conference. Papers submitted to the journal for publication need not have been presented at the Society’s annual meetings, nor must contributors be active members at the time they submit their work for publications.
Graduate students and recent post-graduateswho present at the annual meeting and who subsequent publish their work in French Colonial History are eligible for the W. J. Eccles Prize. For more information about the French Colonial Historical Society, see the FCHS website at www.frenchcolonial.org.
