This book collects texts dealing with various aspects of what we call 'Postcolonial and Migrant Literatures' and, in particular, focuses on the importance food has always borne (and still bears) in these literatures and the communities they stem from. The aim is to investigate the relationship between food and identity in postcolonial contexts, focussing in particular on the way food has often become an effective ally in the struggle for recognition on the part of former colonised countries around the world. The approaches to the selected texts are multiple and bring together different methodologies. The subject matter is in fact analysed from linguistic, anthropological and cultural perspectives amongst others, in an attempt to assess whether the strategies adopted by various nations during their colonial and postcolonial experience might actually share a common core.

Abstract

This book collects texts dealing with various aspects of what we call 'Postcolonial and Migrant Literatures' and, in particular, focuses on the importance food has always borne (and still bears) in these literatures and the communities they stem from. The aim is to investigate the relationship between food and identity in postcolonial contexts, focussing in particular on the way food has often become an effective ally in the struggle for recognition on the part of former colonised countries around the world. The approaches to the selected texts are multiple and bring together different methodologies. The subject matter is in fact analysed from linguistic, anthropological and cultural perspectives amongst others, in an attempt to assess whether the strategies adopted by various nations during their colonial and postcolonial experience might actually share a common core.
