Whether we speak of historical exodus or contemporary trends of gentrification and economic inequality, acts of displacement influence and shape our engagement with human rights and the world itself. For the upcoming 2015 volume, Portals is seeking papers that explore displacement in diverse literary and linguistic traditions.
The Comparative Literature Student Association of San Francisco State University invites you to submit original critical essays and short creative fiction of a comparative or critical nature. Papers that engage the theme of displacement will be featured prominently, though all will be considered.
Submission Deadline: March 16th, 2015 (extended from the previous deadline of February 27th, 2015)
