The Borders & Crossings / Seuils et Traverses Bilingual Conference will be held on 16-19 July
2008 at the University of Melbourne (Australia).
We welcome papers on a wide range of topics related to travel writing and tourism studies and
encourage participants from a variety of disciplines, including cultural geography, anthropology,
history, literature and the creative arts.
In addition to the academic programme, there will be public events involving presentations by
travel editors and authors of travel writing. A travel writing workshop is also envisaged as an
optional event open to the public as well as conference attendees and participants.
