Starting with a sociological research carried out via qualitative methodology, I present the experiences of some migrant women writers in Italy. I suggest to interpret their practice of writing as an example of agency which serves multiple functions: it allows the women I interviewed, to deal with the suffering due to migration, and with the difficulties caused by the receiving society; it acts as a tool of cultural belonging to – and social participation in – the Italian society, allowing these authors to defy the collective unconscious dealing with migrants and women at the same time.

Abstract

Starting with a sociological research carried out via qualitative methodology, I present the experiences of some migrant women writers in Italy. I suggest to interpret their practice of writing as an example of agency which serves multiple functions: it allows the women I interviewed, to deal with the suffering due to migration, and with the difficulties caused by the receiving society; it acts as a tool of cultural belonging to – and social participation in – the Italian society, allowing these authors to defy the collective unconscious dealing with migrants and women at the same time.
