We are pleased to announce that a new journal dedicated to the literature
of migration has recently been created at the University of Bologna
(Italy) in the Department of Italian Literature. The journal’s primary
goal is to analyze the effects of displacement on various types of
writing, with special attention to how texts bridge multiple cultures
and sensibilities, and therefore, contain within them intersecting
cultural and historical references that constitute points of exchange as
well as tension. The journal will also embrace work on film and theatre,
as well as themes such as exile, diaspora, travel, and other complex
transcultural forms of mobility, such as those informed by
postcolonial conditions.

We maintain that such a project necessitates a specific investigation of
the dynamic and surprising transformations that are currently taking
place in Italian society,especially as these transformations in Italy are
informed by—and inform— other cultures of migration that are part of the
larger trend toward globalization in Europe and other geographical areas.
As a result, contributions regarding all types of primary texts, produced
in any location or any time period, are of potential interest.

Providing for a wide array of critical and creative contributions across
a variety of disciplines, the journal accepts contributions in the main
European languages year round. All submissions are evaluated by a
committee of international referees as foreseen by the peer review
process. Interested scholars may send their proposals and
an indication of the specific section of the journal for which it should
be considered, to the attention of Prof. Fulvio Pezzarossa, Dipartimento
di Italianistica, Via Zamboni, 32 – 40126 Bologna, Italy
