Mapping Transnational Subjecthood: Space, Affects and Relationality in Recent Transnational Italian Fictions


This article addresses the construction of transnational subjects in contemporary literary narratives, focusing on two recent novels in Italian by Gabriella Kuruvilla and by Shirin Ramzanali Fazel. Exploring the construction and the experience of the individual subject as spatial, relational, embodied, and linguistic practice in everyday life, the analysis draws upon theory in human and social geography, as well as in literary and cultural studies, to uncover the complexity of the human subject in mobility.
