AIA Summer School 2024

“Place, Space and Identity in the Anglophone World. Linguistic, Literary and Cultural Insights” – Università degli Studi “G. d’Annunzio”, Chieti-Pescara, 9-12 July 2024 SUMMER SCHOOL“Place, Space, and Identity in the Anglophone World: Linguistic, Literary, and Cultural Insights”9-12 July 2024Università degli Studi “G. d’Annunzio” Chieti-Pescara The summer school in “Place, Space, and Identity in the Anglophone World: Linguistic, Literary, and Cultural Insights” aims to bring together students and early-career researchers and develop knowledge, methodologies, and new perspectives on the complex relationship between space, place, and identity.The evolving global scenario calls for a redefinition of temporal and spatial dimensions in terms of cosmopolitan, transnational, and transcultural practices. These, in turn, contribute to shaping new identities that are characterized by evolution and fluidity. People negotiate their relationships with the environments and the communities inscribing their identities onto physical spaces imbued with power dynamics, socio-economic factors, and cultural memory.Within this framework, the summer school intends to develop relevant theoretical approaches to investigate identity construction at the intersection of linguistic, literary, and cultural studies. The aim is to provide a forum to explore the multifaceted dialogue between space, place, and identity, and their mutual influences.Lectures and seminars will explore how– language engages with the pragmatic and discursive construction of space-place relationships in transnational contexts and their identitarian implications;– literature delves into the complexities of individual experience and amplifies marginalized voices, shedding light on the intersection of identity construction and categorization;– the agency of individuals and communities negotiates identities within spatial environments, navigating between belonging and exclusion, rootedness and mobility.   PLENARY LECTURES Delia Chiaro (Università di Bologna) Elena Di Giovanni (Università di Macerata) Jude V.
