FES 9 opens with a celebration of the literary and academic achievements of Abdulrazak Gurnah, the Zanzibar-born novelist and academic based in the United Kingdom, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature on 7 October 2021, “for his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents.” The issue is enthusiastically dedicated to Gurnah the writer and academic, whose brilliant body of works speaks to the core interests of this journal, as the SPECIAL FOCUS on “Borders, race, and global mediascapes” proves, and the TESTIMONIES section on “Storytelling and hostile environment” confirms. Issue 9 also features ARTICLES submitted by promising young researchers in postcolonial humanities, as well as a REVIEWS section including an insightful reading of La malapena by Maurizio Veglio, a lawyer and civil and human rights activist, who provides fresh insight into the workings of the Italian administrative approach to unwanted immigration.
