CALL FOR PAPERS: ACLA 2024: Texts in Motion: Walking and Literature
CFP Animation and Transport Vehicles
Deadline: October 6th 2023
Cinema arrived with a train approaching the platform with such speed that the audience jumped off their seats. So it goes in film history, as Martin Loiperdinger points out in "Cinema's Founding Myth" (2004), with the account of the public screening of the Lumiere brothers' The Arrival of the Train at La Ciotat from 1896. And with the introduction of psychoanalysis and structural linguistics in film theory by for example Raymond Bellour in The Analysis of Film (1979: 182), so the train metaphor for sex in film lives on.

Migration has become a global phenomenon that indicates complexity and diversity. The mobility of people has also influenced how texts are migrated through translation and how it could influence cultural production. Translation, which facilitates “communication, understanding, and action between persons or groups who differ in language and culture” (Bassnett 5), plays a vital role in the migration diaspora. Texts like people, want to seek new opportunities, they search for a new life in a new place and time, as Moira Inghilleri points out in her book entitled Translation and Migration published in 2017, migration is a “continuous becoming”, it “necessitates movement” (1 & 3).

MSA 2023 Proposed session on Queer Modernist Travel
Organized by Galen Bunting (Northeastern University) and Laura Tscherry (Indiana University)
The figure of travel drives modernism: motion, migration, and mobility are enduring markers of modernist writing across genres. Much has been written about the urban flâneur, American émigrés to Paris, and modernist writers’ interest in “primitivism.” This panel seeks to expand the conversation by paying particular attention to queer modernist travels and travelers at the intersection of gender, race, and disability.
In Passage : The International Journal of Writing and Mobility, the journal of the Department of English of the University of Boumerdes (Algeria), seeks essays in English or French for its sixth issue, to be released in December 2023.
All the contributions should either be written in English or discuss questions that relate to the English-speaking world. They should fit within the broad scope of texts and mobility and their interconnectedness in the fields of literature, linguistics, and translation, among others.
- Travel literature and intercultural contact.
- Exile in literature
- Literary genres and movements
Proposals for presentations on travel writing in English from any period or part of the world. Please submit a 200-word abstract by April 1, 2023. The RMMLA conference will be held in Denver, CO, from Oct. 11-14, 2023.
