Diaspora studies Carla Sassi
Diaspora is a complex concept that foregrounds different meanings and applications. It focuses on migrants’ cross-border connections and flows, as well as on the establishment of social and symbolic ties. It challenges essentialist views of identity, foregrounding ideas of community that are fluid and constantly re-negotiated. Literature is a powerful vehicle for the representation of diasporic experiences. Diasporic narratives (novel, autobiographical writings), located at different points of space and time, grounded in a day-to-day experiences of diaspora, have the ability to relationally construct other places and other times.
La cultura giacobita Lisanna Calvi
Cultura e letteratura giacobita in Inghilterra; gli scritti politico-devozionali di Giacomo II Stuart.
Letteratura e fashion studies Chiara Battisti
L'approccio critico "Letteratura e fashion studies" analizza la dimensione mitica della moda ponendone in luce le caratteristiche di vero e proprio linguaggio. Gli strumenti metodologici offerti dai fashion studies saranno applicati all’analisi di romanzi per evidenziare l’impatto e il significato della moda nella cultura letteraria e per analizzare la modalità e la presenza di mitologie della moda nei testi letterari. Tale approccio analizza anche l’idea di moda come finzione e tecnologia del potere, ponendo in luce come la moda possa creare alleanze con norme egemoniche e divenire pertanto forza normativa che incita al conformità, ma talvolta anche alla resistenza al potere stesso.
