We seek papers on the relationship between a systems approach to exile and a more literary one. If we recognize that exile is at once an instrument of imperial policy, a state of mind in the exiled and their hosts and the state actors connecting the two, a literary product created at the intersection of collective memory and artistic creativity, a remembered series of events that shapes subsequent identity formation, and now a topic of historical inquiry, we might ask: How do these elements relate to each other?
