Wor(l)ds in Progress: A Study of Contemporary Migrant Writings

Risultato della ricerca: Book

Abstract

In the contemporary world, the figure of the migrant, moving across spaces, cultures and languages, has acquired unprecedented centrality. Migrants have transformed the ways of representing, and narrating, the transnational world in which they live, responding in new fashions to one of the oldest impulses of men and women of every place and time: the impulse to tell stories. By engaging with notions of diaspora, postcoloniality, nomadism, translation, exile and migration, the study moves across the Anglophone and Italophone spectra offering a compelling definition of migrant literature at the turn of the millennium. Chapters on Cristina Garcia, Nuruddin Farah, Caryl Phillips and Ubax Cristina Ali Farah.
