Il discorso sulle migrazioni / Der Migrationsdiskurs

Approcci linguistici, comparativi e interdisciplinari / Sprachwissenschaftliche, vergleichende und interdisziplinäre Perspektiven

Edited By Daniela Pietrini

Sempre presenti nella storia dell’umanità, le migrazioni sono divenute negli ultimi anni un tema centrale della politica e della cultura europee. Attraverso i contributi di studiosi di paesi e discipline differenti, il volume indaga su come sia costruita linguisticamente la recente discussione pubblica sulla migrazione, analizzando il lessico, l’argomentazione, il discorso sui migranti nella politica e nella legislazione, nei giornali, nei social media, nel cinema. Il focus è sulla situazione italiana e tedesca, ma vi sono anche studi su altri paesi (Francia, Regno Unito, Romania, Spagna) e ricerche comparative.       

Seit jeher sind Migrationsbewegungen Teil der Menschheitsgeschichte. Doch erst in den letzten Jahren sind sie ein zentrales Thema der europäischen Kultur und Politik geworden. Mit Beiträgen von Wissenschaftlern unterschiedlicher Provenienz und Fachrichtung geht der vorliegende Band der Frage nach, wie die neueste öffentliche Diskussion über die Migration sprachlich konstruiert wird. Untersucht werden dafür der Wortschatz, die Argumentation und der Diskurs über die Migranten in Politik und Gesetzgebung sowie in der Presse, in den Social media und im Film. Im Zentrum stehen Italien und Deutschland, doch es gibt auch Studien zu anderen Ländern (Frankreich, Großbritannien, Rumänien, Spanien) und vergleichende Forschung.

Abstract: Christian Metz explained the “impression of reality in the cinema” (Oxford University Press, 1974, 3–15) based on the fusing of the “reality of motion” and the “appearance of forms” (ibid., 7) and in his phenomenological philosophy of film, Gilles Deleuze sees the medium as having been characterized since its early development by the “movement-image” (Deleuze, 1984). Thus: film is movement and it is therefore certainly not a coincidence that the medium has had and continues to have a particular affinity to every form of mobility as well as to societal and historical movements, which also always have included and today also include the big topic of migration and global refugee flows. The first films such as L’arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat (The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station, 1895) by the Lumière brothers or Georges Méliès’s Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon, 1902) deal with the movement and travel of people in a realistic as well as fantastical manner. The legendary film figure of the “Tramp,” which Charlie Chaplin embodied in numerous short films by Keystone Studios such as The Immigrant (1917), and at length in his feature films The Kid (1921) or Gold Rush (1925), is not a settled person, but instead a man who, with his anarchic performance, always shakes up...
