This panel seeks papers that address different narratives of travel (such as exile, diaspora, immigration, and colonial adventure) in Middle Eastern literatures. The topics include, but are not limited to: transnational narratives (dis)connecting East and West; travel writing; re-visioning history; cross-dressing and cross-gender dynamics in travel. Interdisciplinary approaches on popular culture and media studies are also welcome. Please send 250 word abstracts and brief bios to Eda Dedebas at eda.dedebas@uconn.edu
