Calls for submissions
Closed: ‘Immigrant legacies: The little things in the suitcase’ (August 2020).
When a person moves, along with them comes a particular understanding of what ‘home’ means and the objects, crafts and cultural expressions that it entails. From cooking to singing nursery rhymes to celebrating rites of passage, ‘transplanted’ traditions are the crystallisation of a bond that stretches not only back in time, but also far in space. This edition will explore the ‘little things’ that define the cultural legacies passed down by immigrants and their communities, the dynamics of transfer, rejection, and hybridisation, and the journeys of crafts and traditions throughout history.
This call for submissions is already closed. You can read the full version here.
