Philological Encounters is dedicated to the historical and philosophical critique of philology.

The journal welcomes global and comparative perspectives that integrate textual scholarship and the study of language from across the world. Alongside four issues a year, monographs and/ or collected volumes will occasionally be published as supplements to the journal in the book series Philological Encounters Monographs.

The journal is open to contributions in all fields studying the history of textual practices, hermeneutics and philology, philological controversies, and the intellectual and global history of writing, archiving, tradition-making and publishing. Neither confined to any discipline nor bound by any geographical or temporal limits, Philological Encounters takes as its point of departure the growing concern with the global significance of philology and the potential of historically conscious and politically critical philology to challenge exclusivist notions of the self and the canon. Philological Encounters welcomes innovative and critical contributions in the form of articles as well as review articles, usually of two or three related books, and preferably from different disciplines.

Philological Encounters is a publication of the research program Zukunftsphilologie ( Forum Transregionale Studien Berlin).

Arabica

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.
