Course objectives
The module offers an introductory path throughout some nuclear themes related to the complex relationships between migrations and languages, on the one hand, and literary production, on the other, in the present and in the recent past. Framed within the European perspective of plurilingual education, it will be organised in two thematic blocks, one devoted to the languages of/in migration, the other one focusing on the relationship between mobility and literature. In both cases, particular attention will be paid to the complexity of identity constructions, multilingualism and multiculturalism as intrinsic features of Europe.
Learning outcomes
By the end of the course, students will reach full understanding of the following topics: - Societal multilingualism and individual plurilingualism. - Territorial mobility, (forced) migration, exile. - Migrant populations, diversification of the repertoires, contact phenomena. - Migration and health services. - Migration and linguistic landscape. - Mobility and migrant literatures.
