World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.

[Deadline Extended] A Special Issue of The Global South (Fall 2021) - Contextualizing the Anglophone Novel

Since the 1980s, when the Jameson-Ahmad debate over how to read literatures putatively labeled as “third-world” and the notion of empire writing back to European literary traditions held sway in postcolonial studies, new contexts and ways of reading postcolonial and Anglophone literatures have been introduced and taken up. John J. Su’s Imagination and the Contemporary Novel (2011) and Mrinalini Chakrovorty’s In Stereotype (2014), for example, demonstrate that analyzing aesthetic and fictional representations of life in postcolonial realities brings into light the transnational aspect of contemporary literary production and the global marketplace with Anglo-American tastes and trends, both of which require further contextual consideration.

Special Issue of Studies in American Culture

Latinx Studies has gained attention in this century and is no longer an emerging field of inquiry across multiple disciplines.

We are seeking in broad terms, to bring together a diverse group of scholarly voices that explore historical intersections, identity constructions, migration flows, diasporic communities, transnational challenges to ideas of citizenship and national belonging, and the place of race, gender, and sexuality in all of these.
