Ripensare la diaspora italiana alla luce degli approcci transculturali, decoloniali e intersezionali. Il caso australiano

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Rethinking the Italian diaspora in Light of the Transcultural, Decolonial and Inter-sectional Approaches. The Australian Case · In this article I argue the importance of a more complex approach to the study of Italian migration, which should take into consideration recent theoretical and methodological developments with regards to transculturation, de-coloniality and intersectionality, These approaches will be presented through the analysis of key aspects of the Italian diaspora in Australia, but can also be applied to many other con-texts of Italian migration. Without renouncing to the historicization of the specific contexts of migration, these approaches in fact allow an even richer and more detailed analysis of the complexity of such contexts. They encourage us to take into consideration those minor-ities within the Italian communities that have been too often excluded from the dominant narratives and rhetorical discourse about the Italian migration. From this perspective, these approaches are useful not just on a historiographical level, but also in the development of public history.
