The editors of Global Railway Cultures: Train Travel in Fiction, Film, Music and Visual Art (Benjamin Fraser, East Carolina Univ. and Steven Spalding, United States Naval Academy) seek chapters on train travel as it appears in cultural production (literature, film, graphic novels, popular music, visual art, digital media...) from across the globe. Authors may employ any number of literary, cultural, historical, geographical, anthropological, sociological or psychological approaches. Although titles, abstracts, and chapters should be written in English, we seek global coverage and invite contributors to focus on any linguistic, cultural, or (inter)national context.
