Call for article_journal Studies in Travel Writing
In 2012 the Journal Studies in Travel Writing will publish a special
issue on travel writing and Italy, edited by Sharon Ouditt (Nottingham
Trent University) and Loredana Polezzi (Warwick University).
Essays, of around 7,000-10,000 words, may focus on any aspect of the
construction or refraction of Italy through travel writing in any
period, although we particularly welcome papers that (i) focus on
significant trends or transitions (e.g. with reference to related areas
such as visual culture) in travel writing about Italy; (ii) are
concerned with contemporary images of Italy, including those produced by
immigration, return migration or long-term settlement; and/or (iii)
display an engagement with the ideologies and methodologies that impact
on the discussions central to travel writing.
The timetable is as follows: Abstracts of around 500 words by 1 February
2010; essays to be commissioned by 1 April 2010; commissioned essays due
to editors by 1 December 2010; referees' reports by 1 April 2011; final
copy to editors by 1 August 2011.
Please send abstracts to both firstname.lastname@example.org and
