Originally funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Ohio Five Digital Scholarship Grant, elsewhere.anywhere is an online publication created by the students of ENG160: Travel Writing , a course offered at The College of Wooster. Directed by Dr. Jennifer Hayward and assisted by Olivia Proe ’21, this course delved into the genre of travel writing, discussing both traditional and contemporary travel literature.

In the Spring 2020 edition, the publication features original pieces from students enrolled in English 160 at Wooster. By synthesizing course themes such as self and place, othering and the tourist verse traveler dichotomy, this edition features unique journeys experienced through contact zones.

To facilitate an understanding of these different themes, the selected submissions have been organized into distinct categories: Contact Zone, Journeys, and Pandemic Files.

For publicity purposes, elsewhere.anywhere has a social media presence on  platforms, including Instagram and Twitter. The Instagram features travel photos and stories from the entire Elsewhere.Anywhere community. The Twitter page helps to promote the magazine, giving updates on the publication status of the different issues.
