Twentieth- and twenty-first century literatures around the globe are marked by movement, struggles and transformations, often postulated in terms of crossings of, or intersections between, concrete and imaginary borders, communities, ethnic and racial delimitations, languages, and genres. This publication aims to delineate such spaces of encounter, ephemeral or lasting, that lead to frictions, hyphenations, cross-pollinations or fragmentations. Possible topics: Border crossings; genre crossings in cinema and literature; transnational confluences: the intersection of French and Francophone literatures with other literatures; relationships between center and peripheries, etc.
