The editorial board of Archiwum Emigracji (Archives of Emigration) and thematic editors of the newest issue – Marcin Wo?k, Agata Domachowska, and Joanna Antoniak – would like to invite contributors to submit article for the thematic issue entitled Comparing e/migrations: Tradition – (Post)memory – Translingualism / Porównuj?c e/migracja: tradycja – (post)pami?? – translingwalizm. Scholars from different disciplines – literary and cultural studies, sociology, political science, history, and others – interested in the notion of migration and its representations in culture are encouraged to focus in their articles on the following topics:

  • The history and tradition of e/migrations;
  • Post/memory of e/migrations, of the first, second and third generations of migrants;
  • The representation of diasporas and diasporic identities today; gender and sexuality in the context of migration and diasporic experience;
  • The problem of translingualism as a challenge to national (literary) canon formation;
  • Cosmopolitanism, global citizenship, statelessness and expatriatism;
  • Migrations hubs and non-places as cultural intersections on travel routes;
  • Capitalist expansion, labour migrations (both forced and voluntary) and the post/colonial condition;
  • Migration genres and artistic manifestations;
  • Travelling theories and theorists;
  • Nature and landscape, climate migration, environmental refugees;
  • Migrations and violence (changing borders, wars, population transfers or resettlements, deportation, and ethnic cleansing)
