Next issue [CLOSED] ‘Homebound: Travelling for the holidays’ (December 2020).
At no time are as many people on the move than during holiday seasons, such as Chinese New Year, Christmas, or Eid al-Fitr. For many migrants, this is the only time they see their family in a year. Whether returning to their hometown or home country, going home for the holidays might encounter different problems: from safety concerns and legal obstacles to the costs of travel, and most recently COVID-19 mobility restrictions and quarantine requirements. This edition will explore the process of planning a visit home for the holidays, the journey itself, and how migrants navigate the new complications arising from the pandemic.
This call for submissions is already closed. You can read the full version here.

Beside the proposed topic, we are also keen on receiving pieces that analyse current news about migration and (im)mobility, or reflect on cultural developments related to these topics. Articles should address a broad audience, made of experts and non-experts, and should be originally written in English or Spanish.
If you are interested in proposing a submission, please send us a short abstract no longer than 250 words via email to: RoutedMagazine@gmail.com.
