On EXILE AS MASS OUTRAGE AND INTELLECTUAL MISSION (2004, 11100 words)

PUBLISHED IN M.T. Chialant ed., Viaggio e letteratura. Marsilio, 2006

A long and much buttressed essay on the political epistemology of exile. It  differentiates  between Expatriates, Exiles, Émigrés, and Refugees, citizen (in the legal sense) and person, goes into the phenomenology of “displaced” personalities, discusses with much respect and skepticism E. Said’s hypothesis of the displaced intellectual as creative interpreter, and indicates Brecht’s critical comedy as a possible way towards finding a solution. The essay was translated into Croatian and Macedonian, while briefer and rather different versions appeared as “Displaced Persons” in New Left Review no. 31 (2005) and in Italian.
