Call for submissions for edited collection: "The City as a Space of Exile"
The collection proposes to examine texts that present the city as a space of exile, be it Paris as viewed by Polish World War II exiles or by Latin American writers seeking refuge from the horrors of dictatorships or New York as seen by immigrants. The text can be fiction, poetry, song, essay or letters and personal accounts of the encounters with a city – a place of exile. The text, however, has to reveal a city whose design is not limited to a mere geographical reference and whose function is not confined to a static setting.
The editor seeks original previously unpublished essays on the city, any city, as a space of exile.
