Abstract

The exile experience was characterized by the intersection of contradictory aspects: from passive victimization to active configurations; from the involuntary exile to the diaspora as an encounter in new geographic, political, social and cultural contexts; from the threat to the integrity of personal identity to the multitude of ways in which the exiles participated in their creative reconstruction. Therefore, the challenge for the historiography of exile consists in the reconstruction and evaluation of the processes of mobility, communication, organization and identity construction that accompanied this experience throughout the 20th century as decentralized practices that transcend national borders and discursive limits. that marked the normalized identities in the contemporary era. The contributions of this volume thematize the relationship between the European and Latin American exile and the urban space, the role of politics and the transnational networks of mobility, information and aid, the evolution of art and design as indicators of transnational encounters fostered by exile, and the narrative construction of identities through the analysis of different writings of the self, following different methodologies such as those proposed by gender and the cultural history of emotions. In this way, not only new perspectives on the exile experience emerge, but also innovative methodologies for its historiography. (Publisher)
