full name / name of organization:
Call for submissions for genre, an International, Interdisciplinary Journal of Literature and the Arts,
for an issue on Arrivals and Departures, the same theme as that of the 2008 conference of the
American Comparative Literature Association (http://www.acla.org/acla2008/) to be hosted by
California State University, Long Beach. We welcome submissions of papers on a wide range of
topics pertaining to figurative, literal, emotional, intellectual, and all manner of journeys and
trajectories involving the dialectic of motion and stillness, including aborted arrivals and failed
departures. From traditional travel narratives to accounts of Exilesâ€™ return, reverse migration, and
diaspora, the theme is open to a full spectrum of possibilities of interest to comparatists.
Send an explanatory email with your institutional affiliation and your full mailing address to the
editor at genrejournal_at_gmail.com, and attach the essay (word document or PDF file) you would like
to submit to that email. Deadline for receipt of papers (size limit: 5000 words) is 15 April, 2008.
Please include a 200-word abstract to be published along with your paper. All papers should use
the MLA style with parenthetical sources and a works cited but without footnotes or endnotes.
