English Literature, Colonial & Postcolonial Literature in English, Apartheid- and Post-apartheid South African Literature in English; Susanna Zinato
Starting from a diacronic view respectful of the phenomenology of literary history, in which one can safely place the analysis focused on the specificities of the literary language of the text being studied and of the contextual dynamics underlying its production, the general area of competence of Susanna Zinato is English Literature and Colonial& Postcolonial Literature in English, with a special interest in Apartheid- and Post-Apartheid South African literature in English.Her programmatically hermeneuticala and strongly textual approach relies on the tools provided by rhetoric and literary theory, as well as by contextual(cultural, historical, political) studies in general, and, more particularly, by Postcolonial Studies when dealing with Anglophone literatures.

Madness in postcolonial fiction in English Annalisa Pes
Susanna Zinato
A study of the postcolonial narrative in English having madness as its thematic core. When perceived through the experience of madness, the alienation and psychopathology always entailed in the the ideology and practice of colonialism is magnified and charged with a destabilizing force of questioning that lays bare political, as well as existential and moral, urgencies

Shame in colonial and postcolonial literature in English Annalisa Pes
Angelo Righetti
Susanna Zinato
A study of a the theme of shame that, due to the in-human staged in the colonial theatre and perpetrated till nowadays in new versions after decolonization, has been running through decades of colonial/postcolonial literature in English.The study, which avails itself of contributions from international scholars,involves reflections both on 'white' shame, i.e. the shame of the masters/colonizers and their 'tainted' descendants,as well of the shame of the colonized, originating in the power politics exerted on their bodies and minds. The relationship between shame and literary writing is a parallel theme that demands reflection. No need to underline the urgency of this theme, as witnessed every day by the refugees and asylum-seekers running for their bare lives to Europe- a 'boomerang invasion'.
