Volume 8, Issue 2
The scope of the articles is as diverse as their origins, although all touch on the theme of identity in one form or another. Pablo Chiuminatto and Ana Cortés discuss the cultural dislocations inherent in early European visits to Patagonia, while Laila EL-Mahgary looks behind the fairy-tale scenario of a tourist resort in Egypt to meet the musicians who provide the entertainment. Per Henningsgaard takes up a question of publication history and representation with his analysis of four Indigenous novels of Australia and New Zealand. Elena Stoican considers narratives written by Romanian emigrées. Adnan Mahmutovic, Daniela Vitolo and Carmen Zamorana Llena each take the work of a particular author – Mohsin Hamid, Kamila Shamsie and Hari Kunzru respectively – to discuss citizenship and identity in a range of transnational contexts.
