The first issue of Transnational Literature was published in November 2008 by the then-Flinders Humanities Research Centre, under the editorship of Dr Gillian Dooley. In 2019, the journal moved to its new home at Bath Spa University as part of the Research Centre for Transcultural Creativity and Education (TRACE).
Our aim at the journal is to continue to offer a platform for creative writers, educators, scholars and researchers from a range of transnational traditions to showcase their very best work, with the intention that the journal fosters conversation and community.
“When reframed as a threshold, the transnational border is a site for making meaning: it is an imaginative space through which we can move back and forth from the known to the unknown, and from safe to surprising forms of expression.”
Professor Bambo Soyinka, TRACE
