I am pulling together an Edited Collection called Mobilizing Narratives: Narrating (Im)Mobility Injustice and I would like to invite you to consider submitting a chapter.

The abstract/call for the Collection is here:

Edward Said's summation that "we live in a period of migration, of forced travel and forced residence, that has literally engulfed the globe” (Culture and Resistance, 2003) is an apt description of the riveting and pervasive nature of (im)mobility in contemporary times. Wars, climate change, economic recessions, and social and cultural inequalities all contribute to coerce individuals as well as communities into forced movement or imposed immobility. This collection of articles seeks to investigate the injustices related to free circulation as represented in literary texts.

Hager Ben Driss ( is Assistant Professor at the University of Tunis. She teaches Anglophone literature and her research addresses gender and postcolonial studies. She is editor of Knowledge: Trans/Formations (Sahar Editions, 2013) and Women, Violence, and Resistance (Arabesque, 2017).

A Chapter should normally be no longer than 6000 words, and should be original and previously unpublished.
