This volume intends to tackle the conflictual dynamics of identity as expressed in its multi-faceted national, ideological, religious, sexual and linguistic connotations; volume also strives to contribute to the creation of cultural paradigms that navigate the complexity of the globalized era. Here one has to recall the fundamental reflection on the complexity of identity which Forster has left us: “But nothing in India is identifiable, the mere asking of a question causes it to disappear or to merge in something else”(Forster 1982: 101). This volume attempts to uncover a new sense of sociological, literary, and linguistic awareness amidst the diverse nuances of identity in migration studies. It also simultaneously proposes the idea of a “fluid” and “mobile” identity according to a perspective intentionally meant as pluricentral and plurilingual which allows the book to embrace various disciplines and combine different perspectives of the different meanings of identity; this approach is intended to highlight the diversity of the other, whose individual and social identity are intrinsically plural entities.

Abstract

This volume intends to tackle the conflictual dynamics of identity as expressed in its multi-faceted national, ideological, religious, sexual and linguistic connotations; volume also strives to contribute to the creation of cultural paradigms that navigate the complexity of the globalized era. Here one has to recall the fundamental reflection on the complexity of identity which Forster has left us: “But nothing in India is identifiable, the mere asking of a question causes it to disappear or to merge in something else”(Forster 1982: 101). This volume attempts to uncover a new sense of sociological, literary, and linguistic awareness amidst the diverse nuances of identity in migration studies. It also simultaneously proposes the idea of a “fluid” and “mobile” identity according to a perspective intentionally meant as pluricentral and plurilingual which allows the book to embrace various disciplines and combine different perspectives of the different meanings of identity; this approach is intended to highlight the diversity of the other, whose individual and social identity are intrinsically plural entities.
