Imaginary Americas: The Dual Continent in the Eyes of Non-American Travelers — RIAS Vol. 17, Spring–Summer (1/2024)

2024-01-20

Call for Papers:
IMAGINARY AMERICAS:

The Dual Continent in the Eyes of Non-American Travelers
RIAS Vol. 17, Spring–Summer (1/2024)
(Call open until January 30th 2024)

The phenomenon of travel has been fraught with paradoxes since the times immemorial. Perhaps the most striking of the travel-related controversies is the fact that although it is one of humanity’s earliest experiences, journeying has never been available to all. Regarded as one of the elementary and universal social practices, it was—and still is—the share of the few. Equally paradoxically, despite the archetypal status of the very concept of the journey, in the social and geographical sense, traveling itself is a relatively new phenomenon: the onset of leisure travel comes as late as in the 19th century, when modern means of mass transportation became popularly available and affordable. Unsurprisingly, then, many of those craving the knowledge of the distant lands, used to depend, and still largely rely on, mediated reports: texts, images, and other narratives representing fragments of experienced (or imagined) reality that always require voluntary suspension of disbelief.

Imaginary World(s): American Visions of the Outside of the Americas — RIAS Vol. 17, Fall–Winter (2/2024)

2024-01-20

Call for Papers
IMAGINARY WORLD(S)
American Visions of the Outside of the Americas
RIAS Vol. 17, Fall–Winter (2/2024)
(Call open until March 30th 2024)

The two Oceans, simultaneously connecting and separating continents, serve as hermeneutic lenses for the Americans who “read” the world outside of the Americas. The paradoxes of travel (and) writing continue to loom large in narratives created by poets, prosateurs, filmmakers, visual artists, and musicians, or simply leisure tourists, who inhabit the Americas from the North-West Passage to Tierra del Fuego, and who have explored Europe, Asia, Australia and Oceania, or those who have been experiencing the Americas hemispherically. Like in the past, also in the present, travel has been generating vivid interest owing to the ecstatic promise it carries. To many inhabitants of the Americas to whom voyaging remains unattainable, the world is, by and large, an imaginary world. (Read full Call for Papers here...)

Vietnam and the Americas: 50 Years After — RIAS Vol. 18, Spring–Summer (1/2025)

2024-01-20

Call for Papers:
Vietnam and the Americas: 50 Years After

RIAS Vol. 18, Spring–Summer (1/2024)
Edited by Justin M. Battin and Giacomo Traina
(Call open until October 31st 2024)

2025 will mark the 50th anniversary since the conclusion of US-led military involvement in Vietnam, a pivotal event in the 20th century with far-reaching consequences, such as the formation of diasporic communities worldwide, many of which settled across the Americas, with the majority established in North America. The five decades provide us with a unique perspective on the possibilities and impossibilities of healing and reconciliation and understanding the long-term war legacies between both Vietnamese and American societies. Studying the processes determining the transoceanic value transfer is the sine-qua-non condition of appreciating how the cultures of the Americas and the culture of Vietnam have influenced and enriched each other, beyond political and historical contexts.
