This lucid and finely crafted book explores how migration has made ‘home’ a constantly evolving concept and how practices of home-making can extend through memory and imagination to include spaces as diverse as the call centre and the train station. Providing detailed new readings of a range of postcolonial texts in Italian, this book will be essential reading for all scholars and students who engage with cultural representations of migration. – Emma Bond, Reader, University of St Andrews, Scotland This is an inspirational book that provides a compelling analysis of how migration literature negotiates and reconceives notions of home. Giuliani brilliantly explores how domestic and public spaces are reconfigured in postcolonial literature, allowing us to grasp the complexity of the lived experiences of migrants. Giuliani’s engaging work offers an innovative perspective on migration culture; an essential reading for anyone interested in Postcolonial, Memory and Space Studies. – Simone Brioni, Associate Professor, Stony Brook University, USA This book examines the meaning of home through the investigation of a series of public and private spaces recurrent in Italian postcolonial literature. The chapters, by considering Termini train station in Rome, phone centres, the condominium, and the private spaces of the bathroom and the bedroom, investigate how migrant characters inhabit those places and turn them into familiar spaces of belonging. Home, Memory and Belonging in Italian Postcolonial Literature suggests “home spaces” as a lens to examine these places and the practices enacted by their inhabitants to feel at home. Drawing on a wide array of sources, this book focuses on the role played by memory in creating transnational connections between present and past locations and on how these connections shape migrants’ sense of self and migrants’ identity. Dr Chiara Giuliani is Lecturer in Italian Studies at University College Cork (Ireland). She researches different aspects of postcolonial literature, questions of home and identity, as well as the cultural representation of the Chinese community in Italy. She has published widely on these topics in academic journals and books.
