Apart from many articles, he also published a monograph entitled „La Croix, la baleine et le canon : La France face à la Corée au milieu du XIXe siècle [Cross, Whale and Cannon: French Encounters with Korea in the Mid-Nineteenth Century], with Cerf in 2012.

During his fellowship with the Käte Hamburger Kolleg, Pierre-Emmanuel Roux will work on two book projects, both based on his dissertation.
