This volume critically explores the contact zones between cultures, literatures and languages from theoretical, methodological and thematic perspectives. It is made up of a network of factual, metaphorical, and intersemiotic contact zones and bridges, emphasising, on the one hand, the sites of contact and their borders and, on the other hand, the sites of connection and connecting movements. Cultural, literary and linguistic contact zones comprise transcultural and interdisciplinary spaces, which reflect the multifarious dynamics characterising contemporary societies. They lead to limitless processes involving the re-conceptualisation and reconfiguration of individual, social, and cultural events through the application of cross-disciplinary theories, methods, and tools. This critical perspective guides the very structure of this collection, in its single contributions and as a whole: literary, cultural, and linguistic ana lyses are arranged following the dynamics of the border-crossing theoretical premises animating itstranscultural and interdisciplinary approach.
