We are looking for contributors who are motivated to keep up with the newest publications in their field of study and write an annual critical bibliographical survey on it. Your survey will be an invaluable resource for your fellow scholars to stay informed of what really matters and stands out.

The Year's Work in Modern Language Studies is an annual critical bibliography of scholarly work done in the modern European languages (except English). Each contribution covers publications on a modern European language or its literature in a certain period, for instance French Studies of the Seventeenth Century, Medieval Welsh Literature, Modern Greek Linguistics, or Occitan Literature. All contributions are in English and written by experts in the field.

If you wish to join this team of experts, do not hesitate to reach out to the appropriate section editor. In your field of study we currently have the following vacancies to write a survey on 2022 publications, or the year after.
