The FRENCH REVIEW is the official journal of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF) and has the largest circulation of any scholarly journal of French and Francophone studies in the world. As of 2021, the French Review is distributed online and in print by Johns Hopkins University Press: https://muse.jhu.edu/journal/777. AATF members can access the French Review articles and reviews through: https://frenchteachers.org/french-review.

The French Review is published four times a year (October, December, March, and May). Every year, we publish (in English and French) approximately 50 articles and 300 reviews on French and Francophone literature, cinema, culture, linguistics, and pedagogy.

December issue: Actualité de l’éducation en France (Marie-Christine Weidmann Koop).

March issue: Bilan cinématographique (Nathalie Degroult, Michèle Bissière et Marie-Line Brunet).
