Scritture Migranti / Migrant Writings: rivista di scambi interculturali /journal of intercultural exchangeDeadline:
We are pleased to announce that a new journal dedicated to the literature of migration has recently been created at the University of Bologna (Italy) in the Department of Italian Literature. The journal's primary goal is to analyze the effects of displacement on various types of writing, with special attention to how texts bridge multiple cultures and sensibilities, and therefore, contain within them intersecting cultural and historical references that constitute points of exchange as well as tension. The journal will also embrace work on film and theatre, as well as themes such as exile, diaspora, travel, and other complex transcultural forms of mobility, such as those informed by _postcolonial conditions.Contact details:
We maintain that such a project necessitates a specific investigation of the dynamic and surprising transformations that are currently taking place in Italian society, especially as these transformations in Italy are informed by - and inform - other cultures of migration that are part of the larger trend toward globalization in Europe and other geographical areas. As a result, contributions regarding all types of primary texts, produced in any location or any time period, are of potential interest.
Providing for a wide array of critical and creative contributions across a variety of disciplines, the journal accepts contributions in the main European languages year round. All submissions are evaluated by a committee of international referees as foreseen by the peer review process. Interested scholars may send their proposals and an indication of the specific section of the journal for which it should be considered, to the attention of Prof. Fulvio Pezzarossa, Dipartimento _di Italianistica, Via Zamboni, 32 - 40126 Bologna, Italy.
