Résumé:
Mobility and Corporeality in 19th and 21st Century Anglophone Literature: Bodies in Motion aims at exploring the intersection of literary, mobility and body studies in Anglophone literature from the 19th century to the 21st century. Corporeal mobility includes a variety of mobile bodies that have long been othered and marginalised due to issues pertaining to gender, disability, race, and class. Yet there is a relative lack of academic work on the intersection between mobility and corporeality in literature despite the fact that Anglophone literature has increasingly portrayed the circulation of people and objects – among others – since the 19th century, echoing the many types of mobility that have occurred through the processes of colonisation, decolonisation and globalisation. This book discusses the ways in which literatures produced in the English-speaking world challenge normative depictions of bodies on the move as they help us reconceptualise discourses on both body and mobility.
After speaking of the genealogy of the project that led to this volume, we will focus on the theoretical frame of the book and highlight how the texts and authors under study enable us to renew discourses on body and mobility in the context of Anglophone literature.
