TRANSIT Journal is the first refereed, multidisciplinary online journal dedicated to the critical inquiry of travel, migration, and multiculturalism in the German-speaking world. As a web-based, multimedia production, TRANSIT pushes boundaries both of traditional scholarship and of print publication. We publish one issue over the course of a year in several rounds of publication, allowing for new submissions throughout the year. Each issue also contains an open forum for experimental work and review essays on relevant books. This issue format utilizes the features of electronic publishing to rapidly increase the ability of scholars to respond to one another’s work. We accept contributions at any time of the year from all disciplines investigating cultural production: literature, history, theater, linguistics, social sciences, anthropology, political science, geography, cultural studies, art history, philosophy, religious studies, visual culture, and film studies and the arts.

TRANSIT invites critical work, in English or German, from all areas in which movement and transition are major forces, from translation to travelogues and other forms of cultural transfer.
