Call for Papers
The number of international migrants and internally displaced people has soared in the last few years because of major political and social upheavals in various parts of the world. From Africa, the Middle East, Burma to the Americas and the Caribbean, huge waves of migrants put their lives at risk trying to reach the shores of “a promised land”. This new international movement has contributed to the emergence of new discourses on migration and mobility.

The growing presence of these discourses on the radar of cultural, literary and media studies articulates the need to examine, evaluate and reassess dominant discourses in favour of thresholds and contact zones. The interdisciplinary theme this conference addresses is meant to bring under scrutiny the multi-dimensional aspect of migration and mobility in a globalised world dominated by trans-national movement and cross-border mobility. The conference will build upon the initial power and intensity of recent scholarship to further explore the politics and poetics of migration and mobility as represented in literary works as well as with regard to other discourses and academic fields.

Locating migration and mobility at the cross-roads between literary, cultural and media studies, this conference offers a vibrant research platform for scholars from different areas of study to provide critical input on the versatile patterns of migration and mobility. However, as migration and mobility could offer gateways of hope, they could possibly entail piercing traumatic experiences. Our understanding of migration and mobility trespasses the cartographic mapping (i.e. physical and geographical dimensions) to address aesthetic, conceptual and discursive representations. Seeking a connection between cultural identities, political sensitivities and comparative studies, this two-day conference prospects to lay the foundations for a constructive dialogue covering a multiplicity of migration-related issues.
