Postcolonial Intersections: Transnational Women Voices from Minor Italy

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The rising corpus of Italian postcolonial literature, mainly by women writers originally from the Horn of Africa, is urging Italian letters to engage with other contemporary transnational productions, thus challenging the notion of national canons and vertical power relations, in favor of a writing seeking for horizontal, minor connections unmediated by the center, as suggested by Lionnet and Shih. As a case of point, the article offers a reflection on Ubax Cristina Ali Farah's narratives and their use of language.
