                 Call for single-authored book-length studies and
multi-authored essay collections on the theory and/or pedagogy of travel

                 The recent critical attention devoted to travel
literature enacts a logical transition from the ongoing focus on
autobiography, subjectivity, and multiculturalism. Travel extends the
inward direction of autobiography to consider the journey outward. It also
intersects provocatively with studies of multiculturalism, gender, and
subjectivity; for whatever the journey's motive--tourism, study, flight,
emigration, or domination--journey changes both the country visited and
the self that travels. This series invites book-length manuscripts from
various disciplines such as social history, cultural theory, multicultural
studies, anthropology, sociology, religious studies, literary analysis,
and feminist criticism. This series welcomes book-length studies as well
as multi-authored essay collections from all periods of literature. These
volumes explore journey literature from critical and/or pedagogical
perspectives and focus on travel as metaphor and in cultural practice.
