Forthcoming: Fashion on the move (August 2021).
In this issue, we want to hear from you about something that is both personal and a statement to (or perceived by) the world: clothing, fashion, and style. We are interested in hearing about personal experiences of navigating fashion while on the move: How do clothing and dress expectations change when crossing borders? What role has style, clothing and fashion played in your migration story or perhaps that of your family? At the same time, fashion itself is constantly on the move, being both shaped by and in turn shaping migration trends as people exchange ideas and know-how while moving in search of jobs, from fast-fashion factory workers to high-end haute couture designers. Fashion and clothing choices can – intentionally or not – be deeply political, outwardly or more personally religious, instrumental for protests, and weaponised by governments.

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.
Next issue [CLOSED]: Empowering global diasporas in the digital era (June 2021).
We are collaborating with iDiaspora for this Special Issue. Diasporas are agents with the capacity to respond innovatively to provide protection to their communities both in their countries of origin and in their countries of residence. As such, diasporas have been at the forefront in developing transnational initiatives to alleviate the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We are looking for submissions in Spanish, English, and French that explore the empowerment of diasporas through technology, analyse the technological tools and platforms used by diasporas, or look into the future of diaspora engagement in the digital era.
This call for submissions is already closed, but you can read more about our upcoming issue here.
