AAIS Bologna - In-Person panel
Call for papers: TRANSITALIES
This panel welcomes papers that engage with notions of transness, in its movement (literary and media transitions, transitory/migratory perspectives) and its betweenness (translations and translation studies, transnational production, transgender identities and theories). We welcome scholarship that makes use of the spaces between borders/disciplines/theories/eras in order to reflect on anti-colonial approaches to Italian studies. We envision this panel as a generative space of collaboration for reflecting on the ways the multitudes of Italian identities are made and experienced in transition, in translation, and in conversation with other identities and lived practices.
Some possible subjects may include but are not limited to:
Translation of queer and feminist scholarship to and from Italian
Media/literature that centers migrant voices
Analyses of texts that engage in trans-genre play
Texts that reflect transgender experience in and through Italy
Transnational media creation
Hyphenated identity media/literature
