  • Il limes e le identità intersezionali. Metafore spaziali della

    • Authors: Emanuela Fornari
      Pages: 17 - 27
      Abstract: The essay focuses on the symbolic aspect of the border traced back to its original etymology of cum-finis, of shared line, or line of contact, and assumed as a place for rethinking subjectivity in a post-sovereign and post-identity sense. In fact, today, in postcolonial and black feminism, we are witnessing the multiplication of spatial images that refer to the edge, the margin and the border as a site not only of oppression and marginalization but also of resistance and articulation of subjectivity. In particular, intersectional feminism resignifies the image of the border into that of the intersection between different axes of oppression or matrixes of domination, which makes visible new social subjects previously relegated to invisibility by the dominant division and hierarchization of society.

  • Disgregare la territorializzazione dei generi: femminismi di colore anni
           1980 e intersezionalità

    • Authors: Paola Zaccaria
      Pages: 29 - 52
      Abstract: The essay connects current transnational and intersectional feminist movements to the revolutionary corpographic thinking-feeling of the women of color’s works and movements in the late 20th century that disrupted the boundaries between genders, genres and belonging. Thinking borders entails thinking about the implications of the geopolitical technologies of borders and barriers, but above all thinking from the condition of the crosser without rights, from the psycho-geo-corpographic space of uncertainty, deterritorialisation, translocality, displacement. It likewise analyzes the non-occluding, but transformative, character of the spatial concept of limes/border with respect to that of frontier/wall/boundary. A character to be extended also to experiential, cognitive and geo-political pathways such as feminist practices aimed at destabilising the no-trespassing signals of nationalist borders imposed by hegemonic male sovereignty policies. Practices such as multilingualism, intersectionality, intercultural translation lead the way, together with anthologies that have by now become classic, and kinds of gnoseologies through which radical transformations, pluridiversity, forms of critical thinking have been achieved. As a result, both the decolonisation of knowledge from a feminist perspective of the limes, and the cross-fertilisation through intercultural translation were encouraged, thus problematising the universal vs. particular dichotomy.

  • Blurring interspecific boundaries: antropocentrismo e discorso
           controegemonico nelle vignette umoristiche di Charles Schultz, Gary Larson
           e Dan Piraro

    • Authors: Elena dell’Agnese
      Pages: 53 - 70
      Abstract: According to the Western tradition, a “great divide” separates human beings from non-human animals. Such a boundary underlies the anthropocentric interpretation of the world and the power system that ecofeminists call ‘anthroparchy’. Given its capacity to break the rules, it is possible to assume that humour can undermine this hegemonic vision. To test such a hypothesis, the article examines the work of three American cartoonists who, albeit with different techniques and strategies, open a crack in this direction: Charles M. Schulz (Peanuts), Gary Larson (The Far Side) and Dan Piraro (Bizarro).

  • Lampedusa tra necropolitica e immaginario mitico di trasformazione

    • Authors: Lidia De Michelis
      Pages: 71 - 94
      Abstract: This essay explores a cluster of plays by Italian and British authors who, against the public spectacles of border enforcement, border deaths and humanitarian rescue, have recently placed Lampedusa and the figure of the migrant at the heart of their aesthetic and civil commitment. Lampedusa Beach by Lina Prosa is the main focus of this analysis, which relies, mainly, on a cultural studies and postcolonial approach. Along with Rumore di acque by Marco Martinelli and Lampedusa by Anders Lustgarten, the play resists the current necropolitical management of migration across the Mediterranean, advocating, instead, a vision of the “middle sea” as a space of transit and encounter, and a crossroads of stories and desires. Consistent with her views that migrants are the last agents of utopia, and the theatre the only scene where utopia can be achieved, Prosa re-mythologizes Mediterranean crossings as imaginative re-enactments of Ulysses’ mythical voyage and establishes a powerful counter-discursive imaginary of interconnection and relationality.

  • Sfide quotidiane delle giovani musulmane italiane in qualità di
           “testimoni di una terra di confine”

    • Authors: Ivana Acocella
      Pages: 95 - 112
      Abstract: The aim of the article is to propose a different perspective on the issue of Muslim women, focusing on the point of view of second generations, i.e. young people born and raised in a Western context. On the “boundary” between two socio-cultural worlds –the Muslim context known through the family and the Western context in which they are growing up– young Muslim women experience hybrid forms of socialisation on a daily basis, developing “fluctuating identity markers” that are both contextual and transnational in an attempt to reconstruct a unity that does not inevitably have to be limited to a single reality. This article will therefore aim to explore the subjectivation strategies that may be produced as a result of the biographical challenges associated with the peculiar condition of “witnesses of a borderland” of young Muslim women. Such challenges and strategies of subjectification can bring out both the symbolic, structural and positioning boundaries of identity, and the spaces of dissolution of the same categories of belonging/reference, thus revealing their conventionality, contextuality and historicity.

  • A cidade “na palma da mão”: experiências de mulheres em situação
           de rua em São Paulo

    • Authors: Maria Vany de Oliveira
      Pages: 113 - 137
      Abstract: Issues related to people experiencing homelessness in Brazilian cities have been the main target of my academic attention for quite a long time. An exploration of the components of such social group drove e me to undergo extensive research in the city of São Paulo in the period between 1970 and 2005. The very existence of homelessness is one of the manifestations of the actual relationships in contemporary society. Therefore, when dealing with people struggling with homelessness, we must consider the social situations that create the structures a social group belongs to. This homeless group includes a contingent of women, with an exquisite diversity in their perceptions of life, experiences and stories. Women who are surviving homelessness in the city of São Paulo are in fact the main focus of this article. In particular, the life trajectories of three homeless women are observed with the purpose to enhance the comprehension of the reasons why they started to live on the streets, and analyze their perceptions of the urban space. In the course of my research, I adopted methodological procedures typical of oral history, together with a methodology which supports the participation of the subjects of study, and the collective construction of knowledge.

  • Naanaaba’amii: In the footsteps of others

    • Authors: Maureen Matthews, Margaret Simmons, Myra Tait, Lorna A. Turnbull
      Pages: 139 - 164
      Abstract: This paper brings the stories of Anishinaabe women’s lives into conversation with a remarkably comprehensive Manitoba database that looks at the relationships between income, education, and health status, as well as engagement with social services, justice, and law enforcement institutions in the province. It considers the roles of women in navigating a transition from a rural/fur trade lifestyle in the mid-20th century to roles as heads of households in contemporary Manitoba. The stories and data offer both a narrative and a comparative perspective on Indigenous women in motion, following in the footsteps of others and taking lessons learned to venture on new paths and trajectories. Limes seems to be a useful way of talking about historical and contemporary transitions and exploring the way that women respond to opportunities that emerge within a colonial and often oppressive political environment. The approach taken here is one of co-creation between Anishinaabe women scholars and settler scholars. It is also undertaken in a bicultural space, where ideas formed and articulated in Anishinaabemowin (the Anishinaabe language) are presented in the language and form the bedrock of interpretation. In this way the paper explores the idea of being poised between two worlds or two or more cultures and languages and formulates responses to the condition of transition in Anishinaabe women’s terms.

  • Liminali in sé. Studi di donne, natura e scienza

    • Authors: Paola Govoni
      Pages: 185 - 204
      Abstract: Since the 1970s, studies on gender and women in science –typically practised by women– have significantly supported the spread and establishment of «science studies», and just as typically they have been underrated. Known as STS –originally for Science, Technology and Society, now often for Science and Technology Studies– since the 1930s those studies have developed beyond disciplinary boundaries by proposing integrated approaches for an understanding of science and technology over time. STS deal with interactions among science, culture, and shared social values, including those of sex/gender, as perceived already by Virginia Woolf and other female scholars since the 18th century, such as Clotilde Tambroni. With the aim of reconstructing fragments of a history of women’s contribution to an understanding of those hybrid phenomena, the present article turns to the work of a number of female scientists who, in recent decades, practicing liminal approaches have succeeded in bringing into the lab, together with feminist politics, a dialogue between the natural sciences and the social sciences. A dialogue that, since the 1980s, has been crucial for bringing us beyond the false nature vs. culture dilemma.

  • Oltre il confine della domus: Giulia maggiore e altre donne romane negli
           spazi urbani e in viaggio

    • Authors: Rita Degl’Innocenti Pierini
      Pages: 205 - 222
      Abstract: This paper aims at investigating a particular variant of the concept of boundary relatively to the world of Roman women. For them the limen, the threshold of their house, is ideally and culturally their limes, the boundary beyond which their action can no longer be free, but is controlled according to precise ethical canons that prevent women from participating in political life or moving freely outside the Urbs. Through the analysis of literary texts of the Republican and Augustan ages and beyond, locutions such as limen, domi, intra vs. extra, ultra, clearly mark this marginality imposed by mos maiorum. A transgression of such limits implies an abdication of the main traditional female values, such as modesty and decency, and therefore damages the honour of women. The point is exemplified by the case of Giulia major exiled by her father Augustus with a public accusation of immoral behaviour.

      Abstract: The paper examines the theme of female cross-dressing as a transgression and overcoming of an ethical limes as identity fiction. The article takes into consideration some fifteenth century Latin theatrical texts with particular attention to the comedies of the humanist Tito Livio Frulovisi whose plots concern the motif of disguise and other literary and narratological suggestions (

  • La clausura tridentina: protezione, separazione e interrelazione

    • Authors: Gabriella Zarri
      Pages: 237 - 259
      Abstract: The pair limes-clausura refers to the ancient Roman fortified frontier road which included defensive elements (cloister) along its route, thus allowing the limes to advance into enemy territory. The same pair must be kept in mind when considering the monastic enclosure – a place of protection and separation, but not of interruption of relations with the outside world. Historiography has investigated the meaning of the Tridentine enclosure in different directions, from time to time assuming as priorities the aspects concerning protection or those pertaining to separation. In this contribution I will highlight the elements that characterize the Tridentine enclosure and its consequences on monastic life, and also show the permeability of strict enclosure.

  • Profetesse e predicatrici itineranti nell’Inghilterra rivoluzionaria

    • Authors: Stefania Arcara
      Pages: 261 - 278
      Abstract: This essay investigates the extent to which, in 17th-century revolutionary England, religious ideology enabled women of radical sects, particularly of the Quaker movement, to gain spaces of freedom. «Moved of the Lord», leaving behind children and husbands, they crossed the boundaries of domestic space as well as those of silence and obedience. The essay examines two exemplary texts of the period, also providing a stylistic analysis: Katherine Evans’ and Sarah Cheevers’ account of travel and incarceration in the prisons of the Inquisition and Hester Biddle’s invective addressed to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, texts in which the authors deploy a series of rhetorical strategies, subversions of the biblical text and argumentative acrobatics, confronting the limits imposed on women by religious discourse itself. Through their public speaking out, these women launched a direct attack on political and religious authorities and, by trespassing into the realm of writing, helped to pave the way for later women writers in English literature, who shared the courage to overcome the material and symbolic limits imposed on women.

  • Vivere ai margini. Accattonaggio, frode e furto sulle strade di Genova in
           antico regime

    • Authors: Francesca Ferrando
      Pages: 279 - 294
      Abstract: This essay examines the relationship between female marginality and micro-criminality in the society of Early modern age starting from the case study of the Republic of Genoa. Through the analysis of a sample of trials held by the Magistrate of the poor between the end of the seventeenth century and the first half of the following century it is possible to bring out the different activities undertaken by women on the streets of the capital. The stories of beggars originating in the Dominion, are therefore intertwined with those of women engaged in smuggling and counterfeiting bread policies issued by the institution. Prostitution, as a supplementary source of small profits derived from begging and employment in the textile sector, finally, shows the marked permeability of limes the limit between licit and illicit.

  • Abitare il limes. Le donne ambulanti della Valcellina

    • Authors: Nadia Boz
      Pages: 295 - 311
      Abstract: Valcellina is a valley on the extreme western side of the Italian Alps, on the regional border between Friuli and Veneto. In Valcellina there used to be a peculiar form of seasonal migration, historically documented since the 18th century. Towards the end of the 19th century this unique form of migrant labour, based on the door-to-door sale of wooden tools and other locally made artifacts, became markedly genderized and was practiced mainly by women who would travel seasonally along a network of exchanges reaching all over northern Italy and across the national borders. This essay aims to retrieve the history and features of this peculiar seasonal migration on the basis of archival research and oral contributions, thereby exploring its emancipatory effects on the women who undertook it.

  • Invisibili ma presenti: le domestiche in Argentina fra storia e
           immaginario (secoli xix-xxi)

    • Authors: Camilla Cattarulla
      Pages: 313 - 327
      Abstract: Official sources have long ignored domestic employment, while the arts have represented maids and recorded their ambitions for social advancement, their sociability between migrants and chinitas, and their keeping the habits of the families where they worked, with a critical gaze that, from the limes of their limited spaces penetrates the whole home. This artistic production, analysed here, constitutes an important contribution to the history of domestic employment and the relations among ethnicity, gender and social class in Argentine daily life from the 19th to the 21st century.
