Transforming methodologies and disciplinary frameworks. A workshop on mobility and human subjectivities
Summer School Transnational Italian Studies – Venice, 20-21 September 2015
This workshop has brought together scholars whose innovative work on ideas of mobility has challenged disciplinary boundaries and methodological frameworks, opening new and exciting ways of furthering the study of human subjectivities, identities and notions of cultural belonging. From different disciplinary backgrounds and proceeding from a range of critical perspectives, each speaker explores how subjectivity is articulated within transnational spaces where individual and collective identities are constantly shaped and transformed.
