Associate Professor of Humanities and Liberal Arts at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, Dr Kim Salmons and Professor Tania Zulli of G. d'Annunzio from the University of Chieti-Pescara have co-edited a new academic book Migration, Modernity and Transnationalism in the Work of Joseph Conrad.
Conrad's writing remains as important and pertinent today as it was at the beginning of the twentieth century. This book is a collection of essays written by highly respected Joseph Conrad scholars, examining his work across historical, political, and national borders while also exploring the recurring themes in his work and life including: the experience of the migrant in exile, rights of entry, border crossings, cultural transitions, integration, and hybridization.
Associate Professor of Humanities and Liberal Arts at St Mary’s, Kim Salmons said “Conrad’s fiction anticipates and articulates the experience of migration and transnationalism. His work is as relevant today as it was at the beginning of the 20 century and this book shows us why”.
The book has been published by Bloomsbury and is available to purchase online.
