This special issue of the Journal of the MMLA aims to interrogate how transatlantic encounters, itineraries, and movements have shaped literary and cultural expressions, influencing the formation of both individual and collective knowledge. In particular, it aspires to foster a dialogue to address political, ethical, sexual, and aesthetic questions related to transatlantic interactions among people, practices, and ideas, expanding from traditional Eurocentric perspectives and canonized narratives to encompass a global perspective. This dialogue becomes even more relevant in the present days, considering the political and cultural implications of such motilities.
