La condizione metropolitana. Il postcoloniale, l'intercultura, la presa della parola

Giuseppe Burgio

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The term metropolis has a double meaning: it indicates the motherland in the colonialist historical movement and, at the same time, the urban conglomerate that characterizes our postmodernity. The theoretical link between the two meanings can generate a postcolonial critique and an intercultural analysis of our multicultural metropolis, exposed to differences and multiple identifications. At the same time, the metropolitan condition shows us how the contact between the differences is now intra-cultural and no longer inter-cultural, proposing a political rewrite of Intercultural Pedagogy as a plural and materialistic Differences Pedagogy, able to recognize the characteristics of struggle for survival and of cultural creativity that today seem unite indigenous and migrants taking the floor in our cities.
