In Passage is indexed in MIAR and the MLA Directory of Periodicals.
All the contributions should either be written in English or discuss questions that relate to the English-speaking world. They should fit within the broad scope of texts and mobility and their interconnectedness in the fields of literature, linguistics, and translation, among others. The subjects that the journal seeks to investigate include but are not restricted to:

The nineteenth century witnessed an upsurge of representations of the region across Europe and North America, in media ranging from literary fiction to the illustrated periodical and from visual arts to architecture. The rise of regionalism has often been linked to nationalism and nation-building. As such, the transnational dimensions of regionalism—in its themes as well as publication and circulation—are frequently overlooked. These transnational aspects are the focus of the Dutch Research Council-funded project Redefining the Region at Radboud University, which considers representations of the region in literature and illustrated periodicals during the long nineteenth century.
*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.
The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.
Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
This summer school, aimed at PhD researchers with a spatially oriented project in fields such as literary and cultural studies, film and visual culture studies, or cultural geography, asks what it means to read spatially – or to read for space – in practice. Recent decades have seen an explosion of spatially oriented approaches to the analysis of literary texts and other forms of cultural production. Ranging from literary geography and cultural cartography to geocriticism, geopoetics, material ecocriticism, and new forms of spatial phenomenology, these approaches offer exciting avenues for thinking about the many dimensions of real and imagined space.

PAMLA 2022. Los Angeles, November 11-13
This session explores Post-War road narratives by women, written in English, French, Spanish or Indigenous languages, that present fictionalized accounts of journeys across North America. Charting out a comparative, multi-ethnic, intersectional, and feminist counter-history to the American road narrative tradition allows us to envision North America not only as a continent made up of sovereign nations and dependent territories, a vast landform etched with borders, but also as a landmass traversed from North to South, East to West, by women on the quest for independence, solidarity, recognition, and freedom.

Cities come alive and build themselves from moments. Moments we breathe in the present, moments that shape both collective and individual memories. All these memories drift from a solitary pace in a crowd, to a dialogue between us and the other united by the urb. As in Dickens’s words (1859) “a multitude of people and yet a solitude.”
This conference aims at approaching topics from the past, both nearby or further away; topics from the present, globally, locally or glocally relevant and topics from the future – real or imaginary. Munford (1961) states that “the origins of the city are obscure, a large part of its past buried or effaced beyond recovery, and its further prospects are difficult to weigh.”
