Oltre la frontiera: rappresentazioni e immaginari geografici di volontariə a Lampedusa

Giovanna Di Matteo

Abstract


Lampedusa is an emblematic place of migration in the Mediterranean basin. This is due to the process of borderscaping constructed by the passage of migrants, the narratives on their arrivals, the national and international policies and the interventions of NGOs and volunteers who cross the island space. I will reconstruct how volunteer tourists’ experiences can give voice to alternative narratives beyond the monolithic one of the migration islands. Lampedusa becomes a space for building bonds and relationships. Furthermore, I will reflect on the restitution of my research in a context which involves mobile people and a global pandemic.


Keywords


borderscape; migration; volunteer tourism; representation of space; Lampedusa.
