Abstract

This introduction aims to shed light on the theoretical raison d’être, the intersections within, and the internal coherence of the corpus of five essays that make up this first ISSA special issue on “Postcolonialismi italiani ieri e oggi/Italian Postcolonialisms: Past and Present”. The five contributions were first delivered as conference papers at the XIV International API Conference, 10-12 August 2017, Johannesburg (South Africa). The piece also aims to contribute to the comparatively recent meta-critical reflection on the present status and future directions of Postcolonial Italian Studies, within the broader landscape of Italian studies.
