In-between Spaces: Moving Literature into a Hybrid Location

“The margin of hybridity, where cultural differences ‘contingently’ and

CFP: [Collections] Women's Voices in Post-Communist Eastern Europe (colection) III: Transnational Gender Performance

updated: 
Saturday, January 19, 2008 - 3:17pm
Maria-Sabina Draga Alexandru

In recent years migration has no longer been perceived as a one-way
definitive move from an origin to a target-point, but increasingly as an
undoable and redoable process of discursive redefinition within new
contexts and value-systems, prompted by global processes of inclusion
such as EU enlargement. As national boundaries are becoming blurred and
people are travelling, studying and changing jobs across borders,
national perceptions of identity are giving way to wider
conceptualisations of selfhood as always in the making, always changing
masks to fit within new contexts. Likewise, theatrical metaphors are
repositioned beyond stage boundaries, so that performance of selfhood
