Carnet Austral was previously the bulletin of the Australian Society of French Studies.

After discussion over several years and AGMs, the Carnet left its paper-based origins to go entirely online in the form of this website.

The Carnet used to report:

  • Society news
  • Reports from French programmes
  • Short articles (up to 2 500 words, in French or in English)
  • Book reviews
  • Conference reports

Our previous Carnet sections

  • New publications from French Studies in Australia
  • Recently completed theses
  • Postgraduate Register
  • Conference Announcements
  • Calls for papers (special issues; books)

For information about previous editions of the Carnet please contact the editor, Associate Professor Michelle Royer
