Migration in Literature: Special Issue of Journal of Migration Affairs
The 2020 Pandemic has foregrounded the otherwise neglected vulnerable lives of migrants, especially internal migrants, who live within the perimeters of the country but move from rural to urban areas not of choice but for very survival.
Literary narratives read the phenomenon of migration from different perspectives, be it as a result of wartime crisis, political repression, religious/ ethnic persecution, lack of economic possibilities, the stigma associated with gender and/or sexual orientation, etc. Such narratives help locate the migrant at the very complex interface of race, gender, sexuality, class, caste, religion, ethnicity, able-bodiedness, age, language, legal status, even climate politics.
However, migrant narratives can also be sites of resistance and resilience. Such narratives may highlight fusion cultures; interchange of languages and experiences may manifest in cultural artifacts like new forms of music, poetry, food, new political ideologies to name but a few.
Scholarly articles are invited for a special issue of the Journal of Migration Affairs that might address, but are not limited to:
- Literary Representations of Internal Migrants
- Pandemic and the Migrant Experience in Literature
- Class, Caste, Ethnicity and the Migrant Experience in Literature
- Refugees, esp. Dislocated and Traumatised Women and Children in Literary Narratives
- Violence and Migration in Personal Archives
- Vlogs, Blogs, Photographs, Films, and Documentaries of Everyday Life of Migrants
- Literary Narratives of Borders, Citizenship and Ethnic/Religious Minorities
