CFA: Colonialism and migrations in the contemporary literatures
Migration and mobility were constitutive both for the establishment of colonial empires and for the economic exploitation of the subject territories. The progressive development of communication and transport technologies in the 19th century (telegraph, steamboat, railway) further reinforced this importance. Especially in the phase between the beginning of high imperialism and the beginning of the great wave of de-colonization (that is, around 1820-1950), migratory movements between the imperial "motherlands" and the colonies were concentrated to such an extent that the borders Cultural relations between "centers" and "peripheries" became increasingly diffuse. However, the historical research of migrations and the history of colonization were, for a long time, separated fields of research. This monographic dossier will focus, instead, on forms of mobility in colonial contexts and their representations in the various literatures that, in general, are much less well known and which, in part, have aroused the interest of only a few researchers in recent years.
