The present volume is the result of the Intensive Programme “Frontiers and Cultures: New Perspective in Euro- and Pan-American Studies,” held at the Dipartimento di Americanistica, Iberistica e Slavistica of the Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia. The Programme included professors and doctoral students from seven European universities (Alcalá de Henares, Córdoba, Istanbul, Katowice, Leipzig, Munich, Sofia), who collaborated with professors and doctoral students working in the fields of Hispano-American and Anglo-American studies at Ca’ Foscari and other Italian academies. In addition to offering lectures delivered in the two major languages (Spanish and English) spoken in the American continent, the programme encouraged the interaction between the participants through round tables and multi-disciplinary seminars, which allowed a rich exchange of views, as well as the emergence of new ideas to further scholarly research. Moreover, the students had the chance to discuss with, and get advice from, the professors they worked with during the scheduled activities, as well as with the numerous guests invited for the debates inserted in the programme. Several papers were produced on the theme of cultural frontiers, the area of research around which the whole programme revolved. As a result of these interactive experiences, this volume offers an assortment of revised essays submitted by the participants. In order to reflect the breadth and complexity of cultural frontiers, the contributors have chosen to work by following different thematic interpretations and theoretical approaches. In one way or another, all the essays gathered in this volume tackle intercultural dialogue and the overcoming of geographical, social, and artistic boundaries, as reflected mainly, but not only, in the literary field. The actual mobility of cultural frontiers within the Americas has in fact led our contributors to reflect on the effects of this mobility on literary theory, social practices, and theoretical studies, acknowledging hybridization as a condition of contemporary life critical to the conceptualizing of intersticial cultural spaces. Particular attention has been devoted in this volume to hybrid and border cultures and their reciprocal relations (exemplified by the linguistic and cultural transformations derived from mass migrations), as well as to their repercussions on the boundaries between artistic and literary genres.

Abstract

The present volume is the result of the Intensive Programme “Frontiers and Cultures: New Perspective in Euro- and Pan-American Studies,” held at the Dipartimento di Americanistica, Iberistica e Slavistica of the Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia. The Programme included professors and doctoral students from seven European universities (Alcalá de Henares, Córdoba, Istanbul, Katowice, Leipzig, Munich, Sofia), who collaborated with professors and doctoral students working in the fields of Hispano-American and Anglo-American studies at Ca’ Foscari and other Italian academies. In addition to offering lectures delivered in the two major languages (Spanish and English) spoken in the American continent, the programme encouraged the interaction between the participants through round tables and multi-disciplinary seminars, which allowed a rich exchange of views, as well as the emergence of new ideas to further scholarly research. Moreover, the students had the chance to discuss with, and get advice from, the professors they worked with during the scheduled activities, as well as with the numerous guests invited for the debates inserted in the programme. Several papers were produced on the theme of cultural frontiers, the area of research around which the whole programme revolved. As a result of these interactive experiences, this volume offers an assortment of revised essays submitted by the participants. In order to reflect the breadth and complexity of cultural frontiers, the contributors have chosen to work by following different thematic interpretations and theoretical approaches. In one way or another, all the essays gathered in this volume tackle intercultural dialogue and the overcoming of geographical, social, and artistic boundaries, as reflected mainly, but not only, in the literary field. The actual mobility of cultural frontiers within the Americas has in fact led our contributors to reflect on the effects of this mobility on literary theory, social practices, and theoretical studies, acknowledging hybridization as a condition of contemporary life critical to the conceptualizing of intersticial cultural spaces. Particular attention has been devoted in this volume to hybrid and border cultures and their reciprocal relations (exemplified by the linguistic and cultural transformations derived from mass migrations), as well as to their repercussions on the boundaries between artistic and literary genres.
