Special Issue: Role of female voices in constructing fictional maps of contemporary Britain
Essays are invited on a variety of issues that emerge from the work of diasporic-transnational women authors, while placing particular emphasis on their inter/transnational reception.
Essays should explore, but should not be limited to, the following themes/topics:
• re-constructing identities through memory;
• re-visiting/re-writing history;
• the relationship between gender, ethnicity and citizenship;
• visions of ‘home’ and notions of ‘belonging’;
• imagining Britain: space, place, cityscapes;
• adaptations and rewriting as forms of cultural translation;
• writing across genres and writing for the screen;
• the reception and translation of diasporic women writers in Europe and beyond.
