Voices in Diaspora: critical perspectives on Anglophone literature
The course will investigate the representation of the diasporic experience in four novels representing four different geographical-political contexts, through the lens of recent theorizations in the field of postcolonial and diaspora studies. The course will focus in particular on diasporic identity and its representation in literary texts, and will devote special attention to the notions of ‘home’ and ‘away’ and the re-homing processes that characterise the migrant experience.
