Journal of Arabic and Islamic Studies / Revue d'études arabes et islamiques
Originally founded by Evariste Lévi-Provençal in 1954 as an organ for French arabists, Arabica has now become a multidisciplinary academic journal, with an international editorial board representing various fields of research. It is dedicated to the study of the Arab world's classical and contemporary literatures, languages, history, thought and civilization. From a wider perspective, Arabica is open to the general fields of Islamicate studies and intercultural relations between Arab societies and the other cultural areas throughout history. It actively endeavors to participate in the development of new scholarly approaches and problematics. In addition to original research articles in English and French (preferably), Arabica also publishes 'notes and documents', book reviews, and occasionally academic debates in its 'methods and debates' section. Special issues may deal with a specific theme, or publish the proceedings of a conference.

Fondée en 1954 par Évariste Lévi-Provençal en tant qu’organe des arabisants français, Arabica est aujourd’hui une revue scientifique pluridisciplinaire, avec comité de lecture international représentant les divers domaines de recherche. Consacrée aux langues, littératures, histoires, systèmes de pensée et civilisations du monde arabophone aussi bien classique que contemporain, elle est aussi ouverte au domaine général de l’Islam et à l’étude des relations entre cultures arabes et autres cultures au cours de l’histoire. Arabica participe activement au renouvellement des approches et des problématiques dans le champ des études arabes et islamiques. Elle publie, prioritairement en français ou en anglais, en plus d’articles de recherche originaux, des « notes et documents », un « bulletin critique » et, occasionnellement, elle ouvre une rubrique intitulée « méthodes et débats ». Des numéros spéciaux peuvent être consacrés à un ensemble de contributions traitant d’un domaine particulier ou reprenant des actes de colloques.

Editor-in-Chief:
Old World publishes contributions in all the humanities which deal with different aspects of the African and Eurasian past. It aims to enrich the academic discourse by promoting high-quality research that moves beyond the conventional Eurocentric paradigms. To achieve this goal, Old World particularly endorses two methodological approaches. On the one hand, the journal is interested in contributions that examine Africa and Eurasia as a networked space, prioritizing connections and exchange over the geographically constrained studies related to political and cultural 'centres' in the past or present. On the other, the journal encourages authors to creatively incorporate into their research elements of ontological frameworks and insightful concepts from the cultures of their study.

Old World's emphasis on the study of premodern Africa and Eurasia as a networked space takes methodological inspiration from the Global History approach, which views the world in the past as an inter-connected area, without imposing on it the perspective of Western Europe or other hegemonistic areas. The editors of Old World believe that the insights of Global History apply to a broader range of disciplines, and they encourage authors to focus on the connections and exchange in their studies of such fields as Art History, Philosophy, Archaeology, Linguistics, and Literature. By encouraging the creative use of premodern ontological systems, Old World aims to overcome some of the constraints related to the imposition of the Eurocentric discourse on the study of historical societies. The ontological and terminological systems employed in premodern sources may reflect a more adequate way of explaining the realities of the time than what can be achieved using the conventional academic vocabulary. Therefore, Old World welcomes contributions that thoroughly examine and explain useful concepts from premodern cultures and adopt them as an analytical tool, and not merely as an object of study. Such concepts can be used to elucidate the societies where they had been conceived, as well as to explain realities of other regions and historical periods.

Als 1967 das erste Heft der Zeitschrift POETICA erschien, schrieb der Gründungsherausgeber Karl Maurer in seinem Geleitwort: „Heute scheint, unaufschiebbar, die Zeit einer ‚Philologie der Weltliteratur‘ (Erich Auerbach) gekommen, die sich nicht länger ein im engen und engsten Kreise vergrabenes Spezialistentum leisten kann. Methodische Errungenschaften und geschichtliche Erkenntnisfülle aller philologischen Disziplinen müssen zum gegenseitigen Nutzen und Ansporn beständig ausgetauscht werden“. Dieser Austausch ist nach wie vor für die Zeitschrift zentral. Bei der Fülle an Methoden und Theorien einerseits und der kulturwissenschaftlichen Entgrenzung der Literaturwissenschaft andererseits muss dieser Austausch mit benachbarten Disziplinen und Gegenstandsbereichen mittlerweile aber vor allem darauf zielen, die spezifischen Merkmale der Literaturwissenschaft zu schärfen. Auf diesem Weg will POETICA dazu beitragen, der Literaturwissenschaft jene Besonderheit zu sichern, die sie auch in Zukunft zu einem interessanten und deshalb gefragten Gesprächspartner macht, der konstitutive Kompetenzen anzubieten vermag, die andernorts nicht ausgebildet werden.

When the first issue of the journal POETICA was published in 1967, the founding editor Karl Maurer wrote in his editorial: "Today, the time seems to have arrived for a 'philology of the world literature' (Erich Auerbach), which can no longer afford a specialism buried in a narrow and intimate circle. Methodological achievements and historical knowledge of all philological disciplines have to be constantly exchanged for mutual benefit and encouragement". This exchange continues to be central to the journal. Given the multitude of methods and theories on the one hand and the dissolution of the boundaries of literary studies in cultural studies on the other, however, this exchange with neighboring disciplines and subject areas must now aim above all at sharpening the specific characteristics of literary studies. In this way POETICA wants to contribute towards securing that special feature of literary studies which will make it an interesting and therefore highly demanded discussion partner in the future, that is able to offer constitutive competencies which are not trained elsewhere.
