Call For Papers

Travel to the city of Halden, Norway, for an international conference on travel and/as intercultural communication. Explore an exciting interdisciplinary topic in a welcoming intercultural environment.

We live in a global network where spatial, linguistic and cultural mobility is reshaping our identities. This mobility is unprecedented in its scope, and caused by a multitude of reasons from pure leisurely travel to desperate flight. This international conference aims to explore mobility from an interdisciplinary perspective, addressing the roleof travel – past and present – and intercultural communication connected to travel.

We welcome theoretical and applied research papers in English dealing with travel texts focusing on going North. All types of texts are of interest – a non-exhaustive list would include films, internet blogs, travel guides, political reports, historical accounts, migrant literature and visual art. We invite contributions from a number of disciplines such as literature, languages, media studies, culture and anthropological studies, and political and historical studies.

Please submit a 200-word abstract for peer review at by January 3rd, 2016. Participants will have 20 minutes for their presentations. Notice of acceptance will be sent out by January 8th, and accepted abstracts will be published on the conference website prior to the conference.

This conference is organised by Østfold University College, Norway and the Department of English at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania as part of the project “East-North Travel and Intercultural Communication in Europe” (ENTICE) funded from the EEA and Norway Grants. It follows the First ENTICE International Conference on Travel and Intercultural Communication in Europe “Going East”, which took place in Iasi, Romania in 2015.
