Brasil/Brazil Revista de Literatura Brasileira/ A Journal of Brazilian Literature

Brasil/Brazil is a journal specializing in Brazilian literature, including comparative literature with a Brazilian focus. It publishes scholarly essays, original fiction and poetry by Brazilian authors, and translations of Brazilian works. Brasil/Brazil is jointly published by the Department of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies at Brown University and the Associação Cultural Acervo Literário de Erico Verissimo (ALEV) in Porto Alegre, Brazil.


Brasiliana – Journal for Brazilian Studies of Aarhus University intends to be a dynamic academic forum where scholars from diverse disciplines in Humanities and Social Sciences will be able to publish their research, to establish academic discussion, exchange ideas and draw on each others’ research within the field of Brazilian Studies.

This journal has a significant role to play at this moment, when Brazilian Studies is developing as a new research area. It sets out to discuss the epistemological significance of the term Brazilian Studies and seeks to define it as an area of studies. To Danish academia this journal provides a solid platform in Brazilian Studies, both in Humanities and the Social Sciences, and it places Denmark firmly on the international map of ongoing academic discussions of Brazil.

Each issue includes a special dossier, with 3 to 5 peer reviewed papers on aspects of Brazil from the perspective of Humanities and Social Sciences. These dossiers are interdisciplinary and bring subjects that are considered important to lay the foundations for academic discussions about Brazil. Besides the Dossier, each issue has a general section, with up to 3 peer reviewed papers, on the areas covered by the Journal e.g. Brazilian Literature, culture, sociology, economy, anthropology, music, language, history, geography, political science, strategy, etc. Special attention is given to the Book Reviews section, covering most recent and important academic publications about Brazil worldwide. Finally, the Journal includes a section dedicated to publishing call for conference papers, news about courses and seminars, as well as interviews with people important to the development of Brazilian Studies.

The journal will publish papers in English, Danish, Spanish and Portuguese language.

Bulletin of Portuguese / Japanese Studies 

The Bulletin of Portuguese / Japanese Studies, launched in December 2000, is an interdisciplinary journal of humanities and social sciences published in English. The BPJS was created as a result of the development of historiographical studies on the Portuguese presence in East and South-East Asia, and particularly in Japan. Throughout these fifteen years of activity and after publishing twenty-one volumes, scholars and students interested in the numerous aspects related to Portuguese-Japanese relations referred to the BPJS as a container of new ideas, approaches, and reliable historical research. At the same time, the BPJS has been considered an important venue for publications in the fields of political, social and religious history, but also the fields of anthropology, sociology, the visual arts and the conservation of objects.

The first series of the BPJS was published in print with a semi-annual periodicity, which was maintained until its 21st volume. However, the adaptation to new academic contexts and (inter)disciplinary frameworks, to new and ever-improving criteria of scientific production, as well as the urge to meet new profiles of academic research eventually determined a new outline for the BPJS.

The Bulletin will now start a second series, in digital format and in open access (online), publishing only one number per year. With this new format we hope to explore new approaches and subjects even more deeply and widely, and to meet the needs and the interest of even a larger number of scholars and students all over the world.

Bulletin of Spanish Studies

Founded at Liverpool in 1923 by the influential British Hispanist E.

The Bulletin publishes articles and reviews, as well as some full-length studies and reference-works, on almost any and all aspects and topics concerned with Spain, Portugal and Latin America.

The articles, review-articles, reviews and other longer works published in the Bulletin deal with an impressive number of different authors, works, themes, genres and periods, researching both the Old and the New Worlds of Hispanic cultures and civilizations. In addition, the Bulletin is currently extending further its already wide-ranging interests by publishing regularly special issues wholly dedicated to Hispanic Visual Studies.

It achieves this by publishing the scholarly work of APSA members.

The journal’s commitment to open access is an extension of APSA’s founding principles. It shows our support for the accelerated discovery of information through the unrestricted sharing of ideas, and it allows us to increase public enrichment through the free presentation of cutting-edge research on the languages, peoples, and cultures of countries where Portuguese is spoken.


Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies

The Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies ( JMIS ) is a new interdisciplinary journal for innovative scholarship on the multiple languages, cultures, and historical processes of the Iberian Peninsula, and the zones with which it was in contact. Recognizing the vitality of debates about change in the fourth and fifth centuries, and conscious of the artificiality of the boundaries associated with 1492, we encourage submission of all innovative scholarship of interest to the community of medievalists and Iberianists.

JMI , which aims to bring theoretically informed approaches into creative contact with more empirically minded scholarship, encompasses archaeology, art and architecture, music, philosophy and religious studies, as well as history, codicology, manuscript studies and the multiple Arabic, Latin, Romance, and Hebrew linguistic and literary traditions of Iberia. We welcome work that engages peninsular Iberia in relation to other parts of the ‘post-classical’ world; which explores links of colonization and exchange with the Maghreb, embraces the study of Occitania, addresses Iberia’s presence in the Mediterranean, or adopts a transatlantic or Latin American frame. We also encourage interdisciplinary work combining radically different forms of sources or theoretical proposals, and ‘unconventional’ types of submissions including brief opinion pieces or archival reports, individual or clustered interviews with prominent scholars, audio clips, ‘podcasts’, and video files.


Journal of World History

Devoted to historical analysis from a global point of view, the Journal of World History features a range of comparative and cross-cultural scholarship and encourages research on forces that work their influences across cultures and civilizations. Themes examined include large-scale population movements and economic fluctuations; cross-cultural transfers of technology; the spread of infectious diseases; long distance trade; and the spread of religious faiths, ideas, and ideals.

Luso-Brazilian Review

In 2015, the Luso-Brazilian Review marks 50 years of continued publication as a biannual, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to stimulating and disseminating research on the Portuguese-speaking world. Founded in 1964 by Professor Alberto Machado da Rosa and published by the University of Wisconsin Press, the Luso-Brazilian Review has been edited or co-edited by professors from the University of Wisconsin Department of Spanish and Portuguese since its inception. Over the five decades of its publication, the LBR has benefited from the collaboration a wide range of well-known scholars from throughout the world. It currently enjoys a reputation as the foremost interdisciplinary publication in the field of Luso-Brazilian Studies in the U.S., and one of the journals with the longest uninterrupted publishing history.

As the current editors of the LBR have continued the practice of seeking to include a variety of topics and critical approaches, the journal has become a key venue for the publication of in-depth studies of the various national cultures of the Portuguese-speaking world. It also has become an important resource for the continued reassessment of the role played by language, literature, geography and history in a world that is increasingly, yet unevenly, globalized and transnational. Portuguese is the official language of eight countries on four different continents and the LBR regularly includes articles authored by national and international scholars whose teaching and research center on the networks that link these countries. The editors are dedicated to maintaining open discussions regarding the models and methodologies will best lead to new modes of production of knowledge about the Lusophone world.
