Migrating Minds: Journal of Cultural Cosmopolitanism


Migrating Minds: Journal of Cultural Cosmopolitanism (ISSN 2993-1053) [https://migratingminds.georgetown.edu] is a new peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal devoted to interdisciplinary research on cultural cosmopolitanism from a comparative perspective.

It provides a unique, international forum for innovative critical approaches to cosmopolitanism emerging from literatures, cultures, media, and the arts in dialogue with other areas of the humanities and social sciences, across temporal, spatial, and linguistic boundaries.

By placing creative expressions at the center of a wide range of contemporary and historical intercultural relationships, the journal explores forms of belonging and spaces of difference and dissidence that challenge both universalist and exclusionary paradigms.

 Migrating Minds: Journal of Cultural Cosmopolitanism is hosted by Georgetown University, Washington D.C., and is co-supported by the “Plurielles” Research Group, Bordeaux Montaigne University, France. Its founders and editors-in-chief are Prof. Didier Coste (Bordeaux Montaigne U.), Dr. Christina Kkona (Bordeaux Montaigne U.), and Prof. Nicoletta Pireddu (Georgetown U.).

Each journal issue is comprised of 5-7 scholarly articles (6000-8000 words each) and several book reviews (1000 words each) and/or review essays (3000 words each).  

The inaugural issue is scheduled to appear in Fall 2023.
