Romance Studies Journal ~ Call for Papers Extended

Dear all,

We have extended our call for papers deadline for our annual Journal on Romance Studies until February 1, 2014.

This volume of Graduate Romance Studies Journal proposes to analyze the multifarious aspects of bridges: their practical uses in the world; how literature and linguistics approach its various forms and functions; “the bridge” as a structure as well as the cultural, political, physical, and/or linguistic ramifications produced by said constructs; as a connection of multiple entities. Could a possible disconnect occur as a result of this connector? What can be said of the “gap” – the “third space” – that the bridge bypasses, and what possibility does it offer us to redefine and reshape our own perspectives? We invite proposals that address these and other questions related to bridges. Possible topics include:

*  Transatlantic Crossing/Sharing

*  Borders and Frontiers

*  Marginalization, Displacement, Migration

*  Globalization and Transnationalism

*  Gender, its limits and transformations

*  Subterranean and Clandestine Bridges

*  Imaginary Bridges

*  Bridges as Transitions/Transpositions

*  Languages in contact

*  Bridging through bilingualism

Please submit proposals (250-300 word abstracts) in MS Word or PDF files to by February 1, 2014.

Please send proposals of 250-300 words to by February 1, 2014. Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 6,000 words (including notes and bibliography). Once proposals have been accepted, papers should be submitted by March 15, 2014.

Attached you will find our Call for Papers.

Best regards,

Cynthia Jones and Lena Taub, RLL GSA
