Feminismo/s, from the Institute of Research in Gender Studies from the University of Alicante, is currently accepting submissions for its 36 issue, entitled “Departures and Arrivals: Women, Mobility and Travel Writing”. This issue seeks to approach women travel writing from a transhistorical and transnational perspective. Thus, we encourage submissions that deal with travelling and mobility in women’s writing from different cultural and national backgrounds and periods.

We are particularly interested in contributions that explore the intersections between gender, mobility and identity, including, but not restricted to the following aspects:


-       Religious or spiritual pilgrimages.

-       Transatlantic and transnational experiences. 

-       Exploratory journeys and pioneering experiences. 

-       Sea narratives, air narratives, railway experiences and road trip experiences.

-       Travelling in/to/from war zones. 

-       Diasporic experiences. 

-       Enforced migration and refugee experiences.

-       Uprootedness and in-between identities.

-       Ecocritical approaches to travelling.

-       Tourism and neo-colonial experiences of travelling.

-       Travelling and the cyber-world.

-       Mobility and ableism.

Submitted abstracts should be between 300 and 500 words in length, and should be sent to the issue co-editors by no later than 1 September 2019. Please also include an additional biographical statement, of no more than 100 words, that lists your educational level, current academic affiliation, previous publications and any other details you may feel are pertinent. 

Applicants can expect to hear back about their proposals by 1 October 2019. Full articles (9,000 words) will be due by 1 February 2020.
