Berghahn Series

Articulating Journeys: Festivals, Memorials, and Homecomings

Series Editors:
Tom Selwyn, SOAS University of London
Nicola Frost, Devon Community Foundation

The landscape of contemporary mobility stresses ideas of home, return, commemoration and celebration. Groups seek to mark changing elements of historical and cultural importance through architecture, narrative and festivity. Migrants and their descendants frequently travel between 'homes', reinventing and reshaping as they go. Such events can themselves attract travellers and pilgrims with their own stories to tell. Engaging with more substantive ethnographic features and linking back to classical anthropological and philosophical concerns, this series contributes to a new understanding of the Other encountered away from home but also of the Self and home.

Formal submissions should be sent directly to Berghahn Books, however initial enquiries are encouraged and should be sent to Tom Selwyn, who will be able to advise and help you through the formal procedure. For more information on Berghahn's manuscript submission procedure, please look at the Info for Authors section on this web site. If you have any queries about the formal procedure, please contact Berghahn.
