The French Association for American Studies (Association Française d’Études Américaines, AFEA) was founded in 1975. It promotes academic research on American literature, history and culture, and encourages American studies at undergraduate and graduate levels. The Association brings together academics, high school teachers and independent scholars. Today it serves 610 Americanists representing many different fields, from literature to social sciences — including history, political science, cultural studies, film studies and the arts.

Information about the members’ activities and the Association is regularly circulated among AFEA members via email. The activities of the Association and its members are presented on the AFEA web site.

The AFEA publishes a quarterly journal, the Revue Française d’Études Américaines (RFEA), whose issues are devoted alternatively to literary on one hand, historical, political, and/or cultural themes on the other.

The RFEA is accessible on line on CAIRN. The journal welcomes papers in French and English. Recent issues include:
- Religion in the United States (February 2003)
- The Sublime in American Literature (February 2004)
- Beyond the New Deal, Aesthetics of Representation in the 1930’s (December 2004)
- American Poets, Architects of Language (February 2005)
- Popular Music, the Proliferation of Genres (June 2005)

The AFEA also produces an online publication, Transatlantica, which includes book and film reviews, review essays as well as articles of all formats. TransatlanticA is available on line at

The AFEA has an annual meeting on a given theme, to which international scholars are regularly invited as guest speakers. It also participates in the European Association for American Studies (EAAS) publications and biennial conferences.

The AFEA supports graduate students in American Studies by providing complementary grants for research trips. AFEA members — Ph. D students and faculty members — can apply for Fulbright grants to do research in the United States. In conjunction with the Fulbright Commission, AFEA members can also invite US scholars to France.
