Tenso in Project Muse

Project Muse, the online full-text journal database, has just added an important journal on Occitan studies to its lineup - TENSO: Bulletin of the Société Guilhem IX. It will be available from the current issue (Vol. 24, No. 1-2, Spring-Fall 2009) onwards. We have recently acquired a full run of the journal beginning in 1985.

Here is the description of the journal from the Project Muse website:

"TENSO: Bulletin of the Société Guilhem IX
publishes articles on any aspect of Occitan studies, including literature, language, linguistics, and music, and prints scholarly essays, critical editions, translations, original verse in Occitan, book reviews, announcements, and bibliographical information. While English is the primary language, it also accepts items in French, Occitan, Catalan, Spanish, Italian, and German.

The journal is sent to members of the Société Guilhem IX and to institutions holding subscriptions. It is indexed in the Modern Language Association Bibliography, The Year's Work in Modern Language Studies, the International Medieval Bibliography, and the bibliographies of Cahiers de Civilisation Médiévale and Revue d'Histoire Littéraire de la France.

TENSO is a member of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals."
