Across a chronological and geographical swath, it covers religion, history, language, literature, thought, science, art and visual culture, and architecture.

The series published an average of six volumes per year over the last 5 years.
Published in a quarto-size format to allow for illustrations, volumes in this series focus on archaeological and historical topics, either as monographs or as collections of essays.

Every article in Cahiers Chronos is reviewed by two peer-reviewers using the double-blind system.

The study of temporal reference represents a wide subject area with various and complex issues. The Cahiers Chronos series proposes collected studies representative of the diversity of approaches in the field of temporal semantics.
The reader will find here, for example, studies on the temporality of the verb in general, particular verb tenses, aspect and actionality, temporal subordination, or the interaction between tense and temporal complementation.
The diversity of theoretical approaches (temporal logic, Vendler’s ontology, pragmatics, relevance theory, Guillaume’s model, etc.) and the survey of languages (among which, French, English, German, Spanish and many others) generate interesting and sometimes unexpected points of view on a subject area that nowadays captivates many linguists and scholars.

L'étude de la référence temporelle constitue un domaine très vaste où se dégagent des problématiques diverses et complexes. La collection Cahiers Chronos propose des recueils d'articles - et à l'avenir également des monographies - représentatifs de la diversité des approches dans le domaine de la sémantique temporelle. Le lecteur y trouvera, entre autres, des études consacrées à la temporalité du verbe en général, à des temps verbaux particuliers (par exemple, le passé simple français ou le present perfect anglais), à la problématique de l'aspect et du mode d'action, aux subordonnées temporelles ou à l'interaction entre le temps du verbe et les compléments de temps. La diversité des approches théoriques (logique temporelle reichenbachienne, ontologie de Vendler, repérages énonciatifs de Culioli, modèle guillaumien, grammaire fonctionnelle de Dik, pragmasémantique de Kleiber, théorie de la pertinence, etc.) permet de jeter des regards intéressants et parfois inattendus sur un domaine qui passionne actuellement beaucoup de linguistes. La collection ne s'intéresse pas seulement à la linguistique française; on y trouve aussi des études consacrées à l'anglais, l'allemand, les langues slaves ou la linguistique comparée.

Textiles are among the oldest artifacts produced by Man. Even during prehistoric times the production of cloth involved large groups of people, and textiles were an important object of international trade, often over distances spanning over thousands of miles.Textiles and costume have throughout history expressed social function and status and inspired the highest forms of artistic expression. It was the development of dyes that constituted the beginnings of modern chemistry.
The Studies in Textile and Costume History are concerned with every aspect of textile and costume, no matter what age or geographical location. Subjects include: raw materials; dyes; nonwoven materials such as leather and felt; production techniques, from the raw material to weaving, sewing et cetera; design, fashion, art historical aspects;the uses of textiles and their rôle in society; trade;archaeology, and social and economic history of the craft; terminology.
The series includes monographs on substantial subjects, thematic collections of articles, handbooks, text editions, and translations.
The Volumes contribute to scholarly research. Their accessibility is enhanced by a proper organization of the contents and, wherever appropriate, by indexes.They include introductions placing the subjects in the context of pertinent developments of the time, and of current research. Text editions are as a rule accompanied by a translation on facing pages; translations are fully annotated; the introductions to both text editions and translations include full evaluations of the text concerned.
The Volumes are in English, occasionally in German or French.
