Arion: A Journal of Humanities and the Classics (Boston University)

The literary essay, rather than the usual academic article, is best suited to Arion‘s purpose of integrating learning and imagination. We value most the contributor who speaks across the disciplines: the author who can write on Sophocles, say, in a way that engages the student of Shakespeare.

This project is housed by Maison de l’Orient et de la Méditerranée Jean Pouilloux and supported by Jean Moulin University. Frontière•s. Revue d’Archéologie, Histoire & Histoire de l’art aims at providing an Open Access epistemological framework for Ancient and Medieval scholars. It focuses on the polysemous and discussed term ‘border’. The matter of crossing borders – of any kind – will be addressed in its opening issue, ‘Exceeding the Border’. Frontière•s provides a cross-sectoral framework to archaeologists, historians and art historians, and moreover, a work tool published on a semestrial basis. In the field of Ancient studies, the common understanding of ‘border’ is often restricted to geopolitical limits. However, it is possible to understand ‘border’ in a wider way according to the modes of separation. Though, depending on the way of splitting, it could encompass any meanings: concrete or abstract boundaries, built or natural ones, etc. Authors are invited to consider every kind of separation between individuals, not only geophysical, state or political ones, but also social, cultural, symbolic, linguistic, metaphysical boundaries. »

« The journal, MD has contributed enormously to the methodological renewal of classical philology studies, reviving and renewing the most effective and respected techniques of the last two centuries, from traditional philology to contemporary hermeneutics.

The most signal among them were the Latinists Gian Biagio Conte and Alessandro Barchiesi, and the anthropologist Maurizio Bettini. The Board soon became International, attracting especially what were then avanguard scholars engaged in bringing poststructuralist literary criticism to the study of Classical texts. Today MD typically includes studies of literary criticism alongside shorter notes and studies of the textual transmission of the Classics.

Les articles forment la partie la plus importante de la Revue. Ils sont divisés en deux catégories : les articles proprement dits et les « variétés », imprimées en un corps plus petit et consacrées à des sujets plus spécialisés. Tous sont des contributions originales, de niveau international, dans tous les domaines de l’hellénisme : philologie, archéologie, épigraphie, papyrologie, histoire, philosophie, linguistique. La priorité est donnée aux textes et aux documents nouveaux. Une partie de ces articles est issue des communications présentées lors des séances mensuelles de l’Association. La Revue publie aussi régulièrement des Bulletins thématiques, procurant une analyse systématique et critique de la documentation récente dans tel ou tel champ. Le plus régulier d’entre eux est le Bulletin épigraphique, qui fait le point, chaque année, sur toutes les publications des nouvelles inscriptions et sur toute la littérature secondaire de l’épigraphie, classée par secteurs géographiques. »

Rheinisches Museum für Philologie (J.D. Sauerländers Verlag)

« The Rheinisches Museum für Philologie, Geschichte und griechische Philosophie was founded by Barthold Georg Niebuhr, August Böckh and Christian August Brandis in 1827; volumes appeared until 1829/32. From 1832/33 until 1839 the journal was continued by Friedrich Gottlieb Welcker und August Ferdinand Naeke as Rheinisches Museum für Philologie. In 1842 the New Series was started by Friedrich Ritschl and Welcker, and it has continued until today.
Hence the Rheinisches Museum für Philologie is the oldest journal devoted to Classics that is still in existence. Since the beginning it has published scholarly articles (in German, English, French, Italian and Latin) on the languages, literature and history of the Greek and Roman world and its reception.
Today the journal has an international scope with contributors and subscribers all over the world.

Thersites

« Thersites is an international open access journal for innovative transdisciplinary classical studies edited by Annemarie Ambühl, Filippo Carlà-Uhink, Christian Rollinger and Christine Walde. Thersites expands classical reception studies by publishing original scholarship free of charge and by reflecting on Greco-Roman antiquity as present phenomenon and diachronic culture that is part of today’s transcultural and highly diverse world. Antiquity, in our understanding, does not merely belong to the past, but is always experienced and engaged in the present. Thersites contributes to the critical review on methods, theories, approaches and subjects in classical scholarship, which currently seems to be awkwardly divided between traditional perspectives and cultural turns. Thersites brings together scholars, writers, essayists, artists and all kinds of agents in the culture industry to get a better understanding of how antiquity constitutes a part of today’s culture and (trans-)forms our present. »

Topoi Orient-Occident (Société des Amis de la Bibliothèque Salomon-Reinach)

« Topoi Orient-Occident est une revue d’histoire ancienne et d’archéologie dont le premier numéro est paru en 1991. Elle publie des comptes rendus critiques, des chroniques d’actualité, des synthèses et des débats. La Méditerranée orientale, le Proche-Orient dans l’Antiquité, de l’archaïsme à l’époque tardo-romaine forment le cadre général des intérêts de la revue, avec quelques axes privilégiés : Orient hellénisé, économie, temples et sanctuaires, animaux et botanique, pratiques administratives… Une de ses originalités est de faire une grande place à des comptes rendus souvent très détaillés ; ils prennent parfois la forme de chroniques bibliographiques sur une thématique privilégiée de la recherche actuelle. Par ailleurs, Topoi édite des dossiers thématiques qui peuvent former tout ou partie d’un fascicule et des suppléments organisés autour de thèmes précis et qui permettent de faire paraître rapidement une journée d’étude, un colloque. »

Zeitschrift der Savigny-Stiftung für Rechtsgeschichte: Romanistische Abteilung (De Gruyter)

« The Zeitschrift für Rechtsgeschichte (ZRG, also known as the Savigny Journal) represents an integral part of European legal history research, having made a significant contribution to the current state of the discipline. Each section publishes a new volume per year which includes an article and a literature section, each complemented by a Chronik and Mitteilungen section. The Romanistic area of research traditionally represents a key piece of legal history. The contributions deal with the various jurisdictions of the ancient Mediterranean – especially the Sumerian, Greek and Roman jurisdictions – their historical impact on Europe and Asia Minor as well as the reception and discussion of modern legal systems around the world. Analytical contributions apply to single legal entities. Comparative analyses trace developments. Current reports provide the newest results of excavations and library findings. The section “Dokumente” summarises source editions and translations. The main topics of the current global Romanistic research, new publications, and translations are reflected in the literature section in the form of detailed criticism. Obituaries, chronicle and notification sections are respected expert forums. We have presented the Romanistische Abteilung with a current source index at the end of each volume since 1997.
