I started my Phd fellowship in September 2022, and the working title of my project is "Between War and Refuge: Mediterranean crossing in literary representations of the Euopean 'refugee crisis'".The aim of the project is to study contemporary literary representations of the refugee crisis, and particularily to analyse the ways in which the Mediterranean space functions as a prism through which the figure of the refugee is reconfigured.
