Posted on: May 4, 2018

Congratulations to Professors Everly, Giannini and von Tippelskirch for their award of the 2-year CUSE Innovative and interdisciplinary Research Grant for the project titled: Centers, Margins, Boundaries - Geocritical Approaches to Representations of Exile, Diaspora, and Migration in Modern Literatures

A collaboration by Professors Kathy Everly, Stefano Giannini, and Karina von Tippelskirch, this project brings together research on the literary representation of displacement, migration, diasporic and expatriate existences from German, Italian and Spanish studies. The focus is on the political experience that Germany, Italy and Spain share under fascist dictatorships and writers who opposed authoritarian systems connects the work of the research group members. The project analyzes the exiles’ voices of dissent. Their specificity allows them to look back at Europe and to provide a critical stance and a unique perspective, seldom heard in their home countries. For more information regarding the CUSE Grant...
