New Book (in Italian) on Said edited by R. De Robertis and B. Brunetti
Identità, migrazioni e postcolonialismo in Italia a partire da Edward Said is the title of an interesting and important volume on the study of Said.
The book offers a critical reconsideration of the Italian literary canon (from Marinetti to Calvino) and of the 'orientalist' practices that have contributed to the building of the inferiority of the South (of Italy) and of the institutional and intellectual racist discourse on migration that have allowed the de-humanization of migrants, the islamophobic discouse and the governmental policies regarding migration into Italy today.
