However, this norm does not withstand the country's reality. I argue that the notion of Iraq (as a nation or state) is a colonial construction, barely a century old. There is a plethora of historical works attempting to chronologise this narrative. My view focuses primarily on the idea(s) that gave birth and…

CASiLaC and THE DEPARTMENT OF GERMAN present   Miriam Sachs Berlin author, director and scenographer   Re-Animations or: How to use dead things The German poet Heinrich von Kleist often created heroes who receive their mission in a state of absence: his characters are not conscious – in mind, or sometimes even in body – at the climax of the texts.

Hypergendered Victims and Genderless Perpetrators: Journalistic Representations of Feminicide in Italy Nicoletta Mandolini, Department of Italian 3-4pm The concept of feminicide (‘femminicidio’) has been recently introduced to the Italian socio-political context and since 2012 a prolific theoretical debate on the topic has begun, both in traditional media and on the Internet. Following the theoretical and methodological framework of FCDA developed by Siegfried Jäger and Florentine Maier, the Italian debate on feminicide can be classified as a ‘discursive event’, a category referring…
