A tale of conversations and encounters

Claudia Gualtieri


The Special focus of FES 5 presents two international projects of scientific research and political activism initiated by Claudia Gualtieri, Lidia De Michelis, Roberto Pedretti, Itala Vivan, BA and MA students at the Department of Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication of the University of Milan, in conversation with Chemnitz Technische Universität in Germany, and the University of Kent and Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group in the United Kingdom. The contributions that follow develop a conversation around the notions of mobility and immobility, brought to the foreground by the current European political situation, in order to devise strategies for renovating language by telling tales that generate effective humane encounters.
