Italian Studies was founded in 1937 as the journal of the Society for Italian Studies (SIS), the principal professional association of teachers of Italian and Italian studies in Higher Education in the UK and Ireland, whose aim is 'to advance public education by furthering the study of Italy, Italian language, literature, thought, history, society, and arts in the United Kingdom and Ireland' (www.sis.ac.uk). Members of the Society of Italian Studies are entitled to receive the journal at a discounted price (see Subscriptions link below), as well as to exclusive discounts on book in the Italian Perspectives and SIS Occasional Papers series. Italian Studies has a national and international reputation for academic and scholarly excellence, publishing original articles (in Italian or English) on a wide range of Italian cultural concerns from the Middle Ages to the contemporary era. The journal warmly welcomes submissions covering a range of disciplines and inter-disciplinary subjects from scholarly and critical work on Italy's literary culture and linguistics to Italian history and politics, film and art history, and gender and cultural studies. It publishes two issues per year, normally including one special themed issue and occasional interviews with leading scholars.The reviews section in the journal includes articles and short reviews on a broad spectrum of recent works of scholarship. Both established scholars and young researchers regularly publish in the journal and recent issues have included work by contributors from the UK, Ireland, Italy, North America, and Australia.
