Crossings: Journal of Migration & Culture situates itself at the interface of migration studies and cultural studies. Most articles can be said to take a cultural-studies approach to a migration-related theme, for instance by analyzing representations of migration in film or literature, or the intersections of migration with digital media or identity politics. The journal also includes poetry, interviews and other non-traditional formats. A detail attesting to the journal's unusual profile is that submissions are not uploaded to an online portal but emailed to the editor.
