  • El desbarrancadero de Fernando Vallejo. Des/integración y cuidado en el
           cuerpo/corpus seropositivo latinoamericano

    • Authors: Diego Falconí Trávez
      Pages: 1 - 18
      Abstract: In the following article, through Fernando Vallejo’s novel El desbarrancadero, I will reflect on the Latin American seropositive bodies; specifically the ones that experienced the disease at the end of the past century. In order to this I will analyze two concepts. First, the neologism des/integration, as a contemporary strategy to understand the body living with the disease, that seeks to find new forms of meaning and agency. And second, the concept of “caring for oneself”, which I intend to apply in the literary terrain, through self-writings (and readings), that enable innovative models of bioethical action to be applied with the purpose of understanding new and productive historicities for the Latin American region.

  • Hacia una des-categorización de la ‘identidad hispanoamericana’:
           estrategias queer en Roberto Bolaño y Pedro Lemebel

    • Authors: Gabriele Bizzarri
      Pages: 19 - 29
      Abstract: The presence of queer motifs in contemporary Latin American literature is getting more and more relevant nowadays, generating a rich and complex corpus of texts where the thematic obsession with the opaque, incongruous, mischievous body overtly exceeds the LGBT borders and becomes a strategy of experimenting new politics and poetics of representing Latin American collective identity. This essay aims at giving a new theoretically hybrid frame of reading to some of the most emblematic texts of the contemporary canon, one where the postcolonial discourse mixes with queer studies. A classic urban chronicle about transvestism by Pedro Lemebel and the novel Woes of the true Policeman by Roberto Bolaño will be considered as case studies: both the faux detective story of a Chilean exiled investigating on his own sexual ambiguity and the magic-realistic performance of a indio imitator of the pop singer Madonna seems to allude to a sort of subversive continuation of the postcolonial assessment of the New World, in which notions of “obliqueness”, “unaccountability” and, crucially, “vulnerability” sound ambiguously as a critical response and as an ingenious actualization of traditionally fostered cultural constructs such as “mestizaje” and hybridization.

  • Past Continuous / A Life Apart or a (dis)integration: alienation,
           transgression, and the grotesque body in Neel Mukherjee’s novel

    • Authors: Carlotta Beretta
      Pages: 30 - 47
      Abstract: What drives a migrant? And what is her/his place in society? Neel Mukherjee’s first novel, Past Continuous / A Life Apart, explores the complexities of the migratory experience and tries to answer these questions. The narrative unites the classic Oxford years’ account with the experience of illegal migration. As Sandro Mezzadra and Brett Neilson point out in Border as Method (2013), European laws pose a deep dividing line between people who move to the continent (in its broader sense) to foster their education, and those who migrate to find a job and start a new life. However, Mukherjee’s novel demonstrates how easy it is to slip from one category to the other, and the terrible consequences that this can have on people’s lives.  This essay will analyse Past Continuous as a peculiar example of migrant literature. It will start by locating the novel into the genre of diaspora and migration literature. Then, it will examine it from three thematic viewpoints: alienation, the status of British women in India, and transgression.

  • Frammentazione spaziale e testuale in Ghana Must Go (2013) di Taiye Selasi

    • Authors: Nicoletta Brazzelli
      Pages: 48 - 63
      Abstract: Contemporary (especially women’s) “Afropolitan” narrations portray multiple and displaced identities, developed in fragmented and diversified spaces. New global geographies including African countries, Great Britain and the United States encompass migrating characters, not belonging to any nation, yet, at the same time, to all of them. In Ghana Must Go (2013) Taiye Selasi points to the issue of cultural, ethnic and linguistic mixture, through a non-linear textual construction, where spaces and times are multiple, the main events are intermixed with flashbacks, different points of view alternate and overlap. Selasi’s novel, the title of which refers to the bags used by the Ghanaian refugees driven away from Nigeria in 1983, is divided into three sections (“gone-going-go”), and basically narrates the story of Kweku (a Ghanaian surgeon) and Fola (his Nigerian wife) and of their “American” family, of their four children, born and educated in the USA, successful professionals, artists, scholars, but weak and problematic individuals. The Sai family is scattered in different places and only shares the same experience after the death of their father, moving back from America to Ghana. The characters’ identity is mobile and their home is not based in a specific place but lies in their familiar and affective ties. In a transnational context, Ghana Must Go focuses on the final recomposition of a dislocated family, through a narration that displays the fragility of contemporary relationships across gender, ethnicity, cultures and languages.

  • Inhabiting the Classic, Constructing the Self: Translated and Translating
           Voices in Josephine Balmer’s Poetry

    • Authors: Samanta Trivellini
      Pages: 64 - 81
      Abstract: Creative translation and versioning of classical material is arguably a significant aspect of 20th-century poetry and continues to represent a driving force in 21st-century poetic production. A field reclaimed by classical scholars, translators and poets, this phenomenon has often provided the artists themselves with a rich ground for reflecting on their own poetical voice. The recontextualization of the classic in new poetry by means of creative translation will be explored through examples from the British poet Jospehine Balmer (b. 1959); like one of her Modernist models, Ezra Pound, Balmer has consistently absorbed classical translation into her own works, often blurring the boundaries between creative translation and original. Her trans-creative poetry raises the question about the use of the classical voice as a space to be both inscribed with personal experiences and employed as a distancing filter from the self. In her collection Chasing Catullus (2004) Balmer moves in and out of her autobiography by self-consciously “overwriting” her own memories through classical versioning. The Word for Sorrow (2009) approaches the themes of displacement and loss through the prism of Ovid’s exilic persona, combining the ancient poet’s voice with that of a British soldier who fought at Gallipoli and the self-conscious voice of the poet-translator. By borrowing Salman Rushdie’s metaphor of the migrant as a “translated man”, my contribution will also address translation as a trope of the writing self in Balmer’s hybrid works.

  • Alejandra Pizarnik: de la desintegración del sujeto a las identidades
           transitivas e infinitas

    • Authors: Federica Rocco
      Pages: 82 - 93
      Abstract: In the work of the Argentinian writer Alejandra Pizarnik (1936-1972), the disintegration of the subject is tied to the use of (pro)nouns and their several multiplications.The linguistic and textual strategies employed to convey a symbolic representation of sexuality witness a voice whose sexual, national, ethnic and cultural identity is transitive and transgressive - thus questioning the traditional identity pillars imposed by the Western (Euro-North-American) heteronormativity. In the last years of the writer’s life, the struggle with language was intertwined with a psycophysical condition that caused regular hospitalizations but laid the basis for a borderline experience which fostered literary creations. In them, her monitored, punished and transformed corporeality still found a way to transgress the rules of the ‘disciplinary’ society.

  • Los espacios de frontera: el locus de la violencia y la disgregación de
           identidades en Los límites de la noche de Eduardo Antonio Parra

    • Authors: Mónica Torres Torija G.
      Pages: 94 - 109
      Abstract: This paper aims to review how the identity of human barbarism embodied by Eduardo Antonio Parra in the northern topography is transformed in the border spaces, which is transfigured in the locus of violence in the nocturnal wandering of its protagonists, who are subjected to the most varied nuances of social violence that marginalizes, condemns and sometimes annihilates its inhabitants. A disintegration of the bodies of the protagonists is transformed into a disintegration of identities in the spaces in which they transit, a kind of liquid border in which the "limits" allude to a marked individual and social disintegration of northern Mexico. A territory where the inequity of society and the problems generated by violence, insecurity and injustice, lead to a deconstruction of the subject and loss of identity. Parra shows in these stories the decentering of the subject, the nonsense, the presence of the unconscious, the desire, the violence and the alienation. A postmodernity in which only the most intimate bonds become liquid and unstable; in which human contact becomes inconsistent. Three fundamental aspects will be developed in this analysis of Los límites de la noche (Era, 1996): the night as locus of violence in La noche más oscura, the nocturnal animal in the urban barbarism in Como una diosa and the nocturnal voices that transit in the world narrated in El pozo.

  • Des(integrando) la globalización. La modulación de las pasiones
           latinoamericanas en los discursos de Papa Francisco I

    • Authors: Maria Amalia Barchiesi
      Pages: 110 - 131
      Abstract: His research approaches, from a semioticcultural perspective, the implementation by the Church in Latin America with his last pontificate of Francis I of a renewed, globalized and cleverly integrating passion, which can be extracted from the speeches of said Pontiff Francisco I, pronounced in their first apostolic trip in 2015 by three Latin American countries, including Cuba, Bolivia, and Paraguay (2015). The rhetorical-passion strategies of this pontificate on Spanish-American soil are aimed at modulating the heart rate of ' In other words, we will concentrate on the aspectuality, intensity and tension of socially radicalized passional inclinations in each Hispanic American country that the pontiff has visited since the new strategies of the Ecclesiastical discourse in Spanish-American lands aim to change the modal (con-passionate or counter passionate) competencies of the social actors at stake, depending on the linguistic, metaphorical corporeal and cultural memory of each one of the countries convened.

  • Arte y rebelión indígena: Julio Broca y la imagen latinoamericana de las
           identidades partidas

    • Authors: Gladys Ilarregui
      Pages: 132 - 147
      Abstract: Luigi Zoja al reflexionar sobre los aislamientos contemporáneos piensa en los muros, esos muros que en la antigüedad eran fortificaciones extendidas a lo largo de vastos territorios, los muros suponían un sistema de exclusión del prójimo, los que estaban ‘afuera’, y los que quedaban dentro. El muro del siglo XX y XXI contiene la plaga o el desplazamiento humano (otra plaga), encierra un cierto tipo de comunidad, en la Muerte del prójimo, las separaciones humanas se hacen cada vez más graves, por asuntos de seguridad, por racismo, por un conjunto de elementos acentuados por las velocidades de la desigualdad, la tecnología del ermita urbano, las iglesias vacías y el aislamiento colectivo que incluye para Luigi Zoja (2015: 136-137) la información inflacionaria y abstracta combatiendo la solidaridad comunitaria. Desde diferentes vertientes, en este momento del siglo, se produce la lectura cartográfica de la soledad y el desconcierto: la desintegración parece ser el signo de todo lo viviente. Hay un proceso de desacralización, de ruptura por la ruptura misma que parece no cohesionar más que una era de fragmentos, se vuelven fragmentarios los pactos humanos, las relaciones son transitorias, los lugares de paso. Y ese aislamiento llega con fuerza pujante procurando la ignorancia, la vaciedad, ‘lo light’ social, evitando ver en los demás un referente afectivo o compasivo, haciendo que ‘los otros’ no sean más que un paisaje, al decir de Pessoa.

  • (Dis)Integrating Visions: South and Imperial/Colonial Difference in
           Dickens and Conrad

    • Authors: Luigi Cazzato
      Pages: 148 - 163
      Abstract: Albeit late with respect to the Iberians, the English contributed in a hegemonic way to the rise of Euro-Modernity, or that geocultural identity which emerged as the central site for the control of the world. Further to the idea of East, the idea of South has been central to British cultural imagination and has helped the rise of Englishness and of the European imperial master narrative. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to examine - through the tool of decolonial thinking – in which way the South/North division contributed to the emergence of European and British modern identity and, at the same time, to the inoculation of its disintegration virus. I will start with some reflections on world mapping and world imaging in European cultural history, emphasizing how histor(icit)y has made geography unreal and local Western iconography has created a global fictional world, in which we all dwell even today. I will then proceed with a brief survey on the concept of “coloniality of power”. Finally, I will try to tackle the idea of South as a literary topos in Charles Dickens’ Pictures from Italy (the beginning of Victorian age apogee) and Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (the end of it), examining to what extent they reflected the North/South dichotomy and partook of the (dis)integrating discursive formations of Meridionism and Australism.

  • L’invenzione del Sud. Rinascimento idealista e prassi accademica
           degli studi culturali

    • Authors: Francesco Maniglio, Rosimeire Barboza da Silva
      Pages: 164 - 181
      Abstract: The proliferation of the so-called cultural studies, post-colonial studies and subordinates constitute a theoretical-methodological questioning of the modern ways of knowledge production. The "South" is these epistemologies' enclave which, through the claim of fighting against the cognitive and social injustices, allowed the academics "other" the consolidation of their practices within the hierarchy of knowledge, due to the integration of new cognitive projects which, in turn, reaccomodate within the academy. The goal of this article is to elevate to the contradiction our intellectual work, which is as placed in the international division of knowledge's contradictions as it is in the mutations and extensions of the modern paradigm.

  • Bisogna difendere la società. La questione dell’identità razziale tra
           Michel Foucault ed Étienne Balibar

    • Authors: Valeria Gammella
      Pages: 182 - 199
      Abstract: Faced with the growth of nationalism and racism in Occident, this essay aims to provide some theoretical tools to think ‘historically’ racism. To this end, I propose a study of the reflections of Foucault and Balibar about this issue. Their positions, although different, converge in approaching racism  as a problem connected with the construction of identity, in which the stakes are, according to Balibar, the political hegemony of a class in the national context, and, according to Foucault, the establishment of power relationships in the social context. In the years in which Foucault studies the genesis of racism, he’s also interested to the political role of knowledge as tool both of domination and struggle. So, according to his re-enacting, biological racism takes form in opposition to the idea of revolution to present the domination of a part of society as something founded in their dangerous nature.  Balibar assumes that after the decolonization a new racism has taken shape, in which the category of race has been replaced by that of immigration. According to the new racism, cultures can’t live in peace if they mix each other and the only antidote to racism is closing nation’s borders. In this regard, Balibar shows that the same creation of nation needs the division of society in races: racism appears so closely connected with nationalism but also with ideology of class, that presents differences of class as insuperable anthropological and moral differences.

  • Translating and retranslating Italian cinema across time: Fellini in the
           UK and in the US

    • Authors: Francesca Raffi
      Pages: 200 - 218
      Abstract: When studying film translation from an historical perspective, it is essential to establish which films were watched by which audience with what kind of consequences (Bosma 2015: 40); to the debate, one should add ‘where’ and ‘when’, as the context obviously must be taken into account. In addition to that, the context – both in terms of space and time – in which the translations of these films have been produced, consumed, and received also plays a key role, not only in determining viewer’s habits and expectations, but also in trying to study from a different and possibly new perspective the traditional subtitling vs. dubbing debate
