Identities in Motion: Legacies and Representations of Mobility in Contemporary Italy

Venue: University of Warwick - Wolfson Research Exchange, University Library

4 March 2016, 14.00 - 21.00

Organizers: Gianmarco Mancosu and Gioia Panzarella

'Identities in motion' engages with recent trends in Modern Languages research, aiming to be a forum in which to discuss different methodologies and representational practices. In the context of discussing mobility, Italy offers an interesting case study due to the singularity of the colonial past, the complexity of the process of decolonization, the history of migration from and, in the more recent past, to Italy. All these historical and social phenomena need to be seen in a multi-disciplinary perspective that encourages a complex awareness of the different meanings of Italian identites and belonging.
